The Beatles support short online film backing anti-piracy campaign Music Matters

LONDON — The Beatles are up for the fight against pirates.

The estate of iconic British band has pledged its support for the anti-piracy campaign Music Matters by sanctioning a special animated short film set to their recordings.

The Beatles’ songs provide the soundtrack for the film’s central character, who uses music to mark the milestones in his life. The film — which is available online — aims to encourage people not to fileshare music so artists can get paid for their work.

The U.K. campaign has already been endorsed by artists such as Blind Willie Johnson, The Jam, Nick Cave, Sigur Ros, Kate Bush, Elbow and Paloma Faith. In March it was extended to New Zealand and Australia.
