Daniel G. L. Bull (born 27 March 1986), also known as Dan Bull or "Douglby"[[note]]the pronunciation of his initials "DGLB"[[/note]], is an independent English musician famed on the Internet for his unusual stance on the DigitalPiracyIsEvil debate: he actually supports filesharing software, and writes musical open letters to various English politicians and musicians on the other side of the debate. His first such letter, to musician and ( in the vein of Music/{{Metallica}}'s Lars Ulrich) anti-piracy crusader Lily Allen, was linked on The Pirate Bay, Piratbyrån, and various other major filesharing sites and his popularity skyrocketed in a very unusual (but large!) demographic.
