Tatu, Peter Gabriel and Sophie Ellis Bextor are among the stars helping the music industry in its battle against online piracy.

The PRO-MUSIC website - which features pleas from pop favourites to access legal sites - provides information about online music and how illegal downloading affects the business.

The website contains a plea from controversial Russian duo Tatu, asking fans to pay for music downloads rather than go to free file-sharing networks.

The site is supported by record companies, retailers, musicians and trade associations and was designed by the INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION OF THE PHONOGRAPHIC INDUSTRY (IFPI).

IFPI chairman JAY BERMAN says, "The point of this initiative is to arm people with knowledge.

"The Pro-music.org site is an important resource for news and information about legitimate music online - where to find it, how it works, why it's important and what the artists and creators of music think.

"Once they have gone through the site we hope people will stop and think about the impact of their choices as consumers."
