I started reading this thread last weekend and it literally made me cry, got me depressed about humanity and I had to stop reading.
The events that transpired thereafter, the pulling together of those not even directly affected and the possibility for greater recognition of NG artists from now on (with possible record deals) all warm my heart, though.
Well done everyone.
If it happens again, I hope this thread will remind us all how this thievery can be dealt with in an efficient, mature manner. And I'm sure that everyone will once again be there to watch everyone's backs and blow the whistle if the situation arises.
