: Musician ‘duped’ into anti-piracy video

Filed under: xxx — Tags: , , — xshortlist @ 7:27 pm

An artist featured in a new campaign pushed by the Australian music industry to discourage illegal file sharing and change the public’s perception that musicians live like royalty says he was duped into joining an anti-piracy “witch hunt”.

Frenzal Rhomb guitarist Lindsay McDougall, also a radio presenter at Triple J, told the Herald he was furious at being “lumped in with this witch hunt” and that he had been “completely taken out of context and defamed” by the Australian music industry, which funded the video.
