UK electropop artist Calvin Harris took on the BPI (often called the British version of the RIAA) after they deleted a YouTube video of his song, which he uploaded himself, for alleged copyright infringement.
“It’s the fucking BPI. FUCK YOU ‘The BPI’ what have you ever done for anybody you useless shower of cunts. . . Fantastic use of time combating piracy by removing my own videos, what a fucking revelation. Fuck the Torrent sites, this is the way forward. . . I’m going to drive my car into the big window in the BPI’s offices on my way to the studio this morning . . . [later] Ok I got a bit caught up in the heat of the moment.“
And in a second quote:
“The BPI are the worst organisation to ever walk the earth, and their set-up is shambolic, and their online employees are all massive retards. This is unbelievable, and it seems I am completely powerless to do anything. Sony have done nothing, the BPI have done nothing.“
Later, the video was put back up and the fiasco over.
