Greetings from Anonymous,
As you have no doubt gathered from various media outlets and our own information disseminated across the internet, we are an internet activist group independent of any and all national, political, or religious affiliations. Despite our differences, we are united in the preservation of intellectual freedom and fair copyright laws. Too long have the music and cinema industries, among others, abused copyright for their own gain. Legislation serves to protect artists not the companies managing them and should never attempt to prevent the spread of creativity to the general public.
We have seen BMI consistently copyright legislation and consequently have decided to take action against it to show that the people will not stand for its crimes against the public. As of the time of the writing of this letter BMI.com has been taken down by our successful attack. This is a message to you and other corporations like you, we cannot stand this abuse anymore. No company can take advantage of our liberties to churn profits and censor information in any form, this is unacceptable and will be dealt with accordingly by US.
We are not pirates, we are not loner hackers in our mother’s basement, we are your neighbors, your co-workers, your family and your friends; we are omnipresent. We are Anonymous.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
You should have expected us.
