Agreed. I don’t think “even[ing] the field” is the correct term. It’s more so about mobilizing independent musicians and giving them agency in a battle in which they feel helpless.
Take a look at Sharky’s bio… he’s a musician. The reason why I got excited about the article is because I’m a musician, and all my friends are musicians.
The way I think of it is a virtual sit-in. The morality of this is similar to that of a ddos attack.
As the comments below yours show, the general public doesn’t care, but musicians do, and they should be the ones that get behind this and ultimately reach out to their network of musician friends and fans.
