Home Taping is Killing Ant Music?

Adam Ant - Home Taping is Killing MusicA parody of Adam Ant has been used by UK Internet Service Provider TalkTalk for their new viral video supporting the Don't Disconnect Us campaign. Featured on BBC1's long-running current affairs programme Panarama this evening, the video lampoons the Home Taping is Killing Music campaign of the early 1980s with renditions of George Michael, Madonna and - somewhat surprisingly - Adam Ant.

Adam has always historically stood against illiegal bootlegging and has passionately protected his copyright throughout his career. What the self-confessed 'luddite' thinks of the campaign is open for debate, but you can read Marco's opinions on internet file sharing in the forthcoming edition of our free Antzine No Response, mailed to all Lifetime Subscribers in the next month.
