David Lowery: File-sharing music is 'unethical and amoral'
*20 January 2014* Last updated at 22:07 GMT
For three decades David Lowery has been writing songs and performing
with his two alternative rock bands Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven.
When he's not on the road touring, Lowery is teaching students at the
University of Georgia about the business of the music industry.
He is a vocal critic of that industry, and particularly how technology -
from illegal downloading to new streaming services - has made it harder
for artists to keep control of their work and to earn a living from it.
But when he spoke to the BBC at his home in Richmond, Virginia, Lowery
also took aim at today's younger generation who, he says, have come to
expect to listen to music for free.
