Justin Timberlake on music piracy: ‘Would have done it in college’

HollywoodNews.com: Justin Timberlake knows where his “Social Network” alter ego Sean Parker is coming from.

The musician shockingly admitted that he would illegally download music, if he wasn’t a musician. The way Timberlake sees it, it’s a very ‘college kid’ thing to do.

In addition, the singer believes that the music industry is partially to blame for the proliferation of illegal downloads and declining record sales. In sum, Parker, the Napster co-founder, isn’t solely to blame.

“The record companies should take responsibility for not being of the time and not paying closer attention to what was going on. I don’t think one person sitting in a dorm room killed the music industry,” says Timberlake.

“On the other side I know songwriters who had to take up different jobs because they don’t get to perform on stage, they don’t have endorsement deals. They get a small piece of the small pie to begin with.

When Timberlake arrived on the music scene, it was just before file sharing killed the radio stars.

“[Illegal downloading] didn’t affect me so much – when it came out I was probably about 19, so I understood both sides of it.

“If I hadn’t dropped out of school I probably would have been at university and I probably would have been downloading music if it was that easy to.

“So I identify very emotionally with the defendants, being college kids, that these labels were going after.”
