A couple of months ago DaniWeb reported how British singer Lily Allen turned the music copyright debate into a copywrong farce with some ill conceived blogging. Things went quiet soon after the media had swarmed all over Allen and her odd arguments, not least as she closed down her blog complaining of getting too much abuse.
Now, following an interview with the music press it seems that Allen has jumped straight back into the controversy with both feet. This time she appears to be confusing price and value, claiming that she wants her fans to appreciate the value of her work and if that means buying a ripped and burned copy of a CD then that's OK - "as long as the person buying it places some kind of value on my music" there's no problem she said.
As Mike Masnick over at Techdirt observes "Her earlier complaint was that when people file share, they don't provide money back to the artists and the labels. Of course, when counterfeiters are selling on the street, the same thing is true, but suddenly it's okay? At what point does the world realize that Ms. Allen doesn't know what she's talking about?" - well quite!
