Music Piracy Should Be Punished With Finger Amputation, Singer Insists
Popular Nigerian singer Stella Monye recently suggested quite a drastic measurement to control music piracy - finger amputation.

As the vocalist told the News Agency of Nigeria, illegal downloads won't be stopped until drastic steps are taken, naming chop-chop as the ultimate example.

"If their fingers are cut, they won't see the hands to use in pirating the works," she noted (via All Africa). "Cutting their fingers off will stop them, by the time you cut off two people's fingers others will stop.

"They will learn and it will be faster in stopping them; without a drastic measure they won't stop. Taking them to court to be fined will not deter them. They will pay and come out to continue," Monye added.

In conclusion, Stella explained how piracy caused major issues among the nation's artists, saying, "You become a pauper because of your pirated works, they impoverish you.

"What is more wicked than pirating someone's intellectual property and making the person suffer without getting anything from all the money he invested in the works?" she asked. "We have been saying a lot about piracy but the authorities have not done much for it to be stopped."
