The latest tool in the war on music piracy is a free app which allows users to take on the role of managing an emerging band. The app is designed to give young people an insight into the modern music industry and to educate them on the effect of piracy on artists. Music Inc is a collaboration between UK Music, the Intellectual Property Office and Aardman Animations. Much of the recent effort to stop music piracy has focused on site blocking.
