Lily Allen Starts Anti File-Sharing Blog

Singer rallies support to take on the evil internet music plunderers - that means you...

Lily Allen is calling on her showbiz pals to take on the mighty hordes of keyboard warriors and illegal fire-sharers listening to the music made by her and her friends without handing over any cash.

Lily has long been an opponent of giving away music for free, having <a href=" target="out">labelled Radiohead as "arrogant" in 2007 when they gave fans the option of paying as little as they liked for their album In Rainbows , and more recently condemning artists such as Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason and Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien for condoning file-sharing and "music piracy".

Now, she’s summoned the power of the internet to put her point across. Her It’s Not Alright blog is drawing support from other musicians against file-sharing including Muse’s Matt Bellamy, James Blunt, Natasha Khan aka Bat for Lashes, and Take That’s Gary Barlow.
