More Than Half A Million Illegal Download Attempts On New Tragically Hip Single

Since the Federal Court decision on 31 March, Internet piracy has been rampant. The Tragically Hip, one of Canada's treasured cultural assets, was one of the hardest hit. During a five-week stretch from 30 March to 7 May, there were more than half a million unauthorized attempts to download the new Tragically Hip single, "Vaccination Scar."

Overall, during this period, Universal Music reported 2.8 million attempts to illegally download The Tragically Hips recordings. During the same period fewer than 1,000 copies were purchased legally online.

The Tragically Hip launched "Vaccination Scar" 10 April 2004 at the second game of the Ottawa-Toronto National Hockey League play-off series as teaser for its upcoming album Inbetween evolution (Universal Music). The lead single was simultaneously released to radio stations across the country and also made available through for legal download at online sites for 99 cents.

"Any reasonable person will be staggered by the disparity in those numbers," commented Gord Sinclair of the Hip. "The grim economic reality aside, it shows how widespread the practice of downloading has become. Don't get me wrong. Anything that gets people into music is okay with me, but at some point people have to recognize their role in the creative process. To me it's an ethical question. If you hear something you like, go out and support the artist. Tell your friends, see a show and buy their records. Your support helps the artist continue to create and it funds the discovery and development of new artists and new music. If you do your part, we'll all benefit," he concluded.
