[pp.int.general] Protest certain musicians?

Maybe not such a great idea. Handing out pirate flyers at their gigs might
just make them even more opposed to us. The problem is that many musicians
don't see the problem with copyright, and one reason is simply that any
music mag, musicians' workshop/course or whatever seems to have a compulsory
element on how to "protect" your work (thus spreading the misunderstanding
that anyone who is against commercial copyright also wants to make it
possible for any Tom, Dick or Harry to claim someone else's work as theirs

It would be better, as always, to educate the musicians. I've no idea how
that could be accomplished, though. The people who already think we're "out
to get them" aren't exactly likely to listen to what we have to say anyway
