...except when we're not.

Dutch anti-piracy group BREIN stole a piece (https://torrentfreak.com/copyright-corruption-scandal-surrounds-anti-piracy-campaign-111201/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Torrentfreak+%28Torrentfreak% 29) from composer Melchior Reitveldt for use in their ad campaign.

When he discovered this, he asked non-profit copyright advocacy agency Buma/Stemra to support him in getting his due compensation, to which board member Jochem Gerrits said, "sure... just sign this contract giving us publishing rights to your music, and then allow us to take a third of what you're owed."
