Lily Allen has taken down her blog which she created to support her campaign against illegal file-sharing, because the "abuse" she was getting for doing it was "getting too much".

Called 'It's Not Alright', the blog featured other artists' thoughts on the file-sharing topic and included supportive messages from other artists like Mark Ronson, Gary Barlow of Take That and Bat For Lashes' Natasha Khan.

"The abuse was getting too much," She said via her Twitter account - Twitter.com/LilyRoseAllen. She added: "I'm proud of the fact that that I've been involved with this debate but I'm passing the baton on to other artists."

She also commented that "there is a meeting today in London where artists are meeting to discuss piracy. My job done", before adding that she wouldn't be attending the meeting because "it's going to be a press frenzy and I don't want to detract from the issues".

As Billboard previously reported, the Featured Artists Coalition had called a closed meeting in London "to hammer out a unified position on this issue".

Allen, who earlier this month challenged the Featured Artists Coalition over their stance on illegal downloads, has since received a letter from the FAC outlining that they were in fact opposed to illegal downloading.
