The Beatles backed campaign against music piracy

The heirs of the iconic British band "The Beatles", have pledged their support to the anti-piracy campaign by passing a Music Matters animated short with his recordings. The Beatles songs used as soundtrack to the film's protagonist, who uses music to mark the crucial moments of his life.

The film, which is available on the Internet, encourages people not to swap music files so that artists can charge for their work. The British campaign, whose name can be translated variously as "Music Matters" or "music matters" has the support of artists such as Blind Willie Johnson, The Jam, Nick Cave, Sigur Ros, Kate Bush, Elbow or Paloma Faith.

The campaign was extended in March to New Zealand and Australia.
