GENE SIMMONS Websites Target Of Online Attackers

Postby sledge » Fri Oct 15, 2010 8:54 am

Kiss bassist is bumped offline after comments endorsing aggressive stance against copyright infringement

Gene Simmons, has become the latest target of assiduous online attackers, Anonymous.

Two of Simmons' official websites, SimmonsRecords.com and GeneSimmons.com, have been hit by the group of activists as an apparent reprisal for insisting that musicians should be far more aggressive in the pursuit of illicit filesharers. The Anonymous group, linked umbilically to influential online forum 4Chan, have forced several websites linked to copyright-protection bodies offline in recent weeks.

The offending comments were made by Simmons on a panel about building a successful entertainment brand. He said on Tuesday: "Make sure your brand is protected. Make sure there are no incursions. Be litigious. Sue everybody. Take their homes, their cars. Don't let anybody cross that line.

"The music industry was asleep at the wheel, and didn't have the balls to sue every fresh-faced, freckle-faced college kid who downloaded material. And so now we're left with hundreds of thousands of people without jobs. There's no industry."

Ouch. You can almost hear Anonymous wheeling around their (illegal) DDoS missiles. And, sure enough, little more than 24 hours later Simmons' online brand has been knocked off the internet.

This is what was displayed on his website:
