Your stuff is on there?
Yeah, then you have to chase after these guys to take it off because you’re losing money because your DVDs aren’t selling … that kind of stuff. That’s a downside. On the other hand, when I think about it, that’s kind of interesting too. A weird stealing. They’re ‘stealing’ from me, but I would say if they do that to a shitty Hollywood film – I’m all for it! [Laughs.] So where are the moral implications here?
Where’s the revolution?
Yeah! I happen to think that if you’re fucking around with some corporation, then I don’t care! ‘Cause they make a lot of money and they are gonna make it no matter what. But if you are fucking with somebody’s basic lifeblood … Take, for example, the Dee Dee Ramone DVD [Hey Is Dee Dee Home?, 2003]: we released 15,000, which isn’t much. So if they are ripping that off, that means they are taking money out of my pocket … well, kind of. So, maybe you sell a thousand less DVDs and you make a few thousand dollars less money. I dunno. In a way it’s cool that they are ripping you off, but I would still like to make the money!
