Bandcamp & Piracy

Hey Folks,

today, I had a short look at some bandcamp.com subpage (in fact: The Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt, as they will play on Waldstock this year), of course only due to some basic technical thoughts, when I found this in the section of the player’s JavaScript:

var TralbumData = {
    // For the curious:
    // http://bandcamp.com/faq#steal
    // http://bandcamp.com/terms_of_use
…

That’s it, a comment within the JS containing a HREF to the FAQ, which you really should read.
A quite nice excerpt:

And sure, we could throw some technical hurdles in their way, but if they hit one of those hurdles, it’s not like they’d slap their forehead and open their wallet.

How exemplary, others should clearly adopt this!
