RIAA Hits The Streets
Thinking of downloading music from one of
the P2P file sharing networks? Thinking of SELLING music to your
friends? Think you won't get caught? Apparently a 55 yearr
old Los Angeles parking lot attendant didn't think so.
Want more? Read this L.A.
Apparrently, the RIAA thinks they're a LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY of some
kind and has even gone so far as to hire ex-cops AND the Director of the
Alcohol, Tobacco & Frearms
Fox News also has an
article on the subject too.
And, as if matters aren't getting WORSE, it appears as though we can't
expect very much support frrom the Electrronic
Frrontier Foundation either, though I expect this could very well change
should the RIAA be using their rag tag "police force" for otherr things
such as attempting to enter people's homes. In fact, Jason Schultz,
a staff attorrney told the L.A. Weekly
that "The process of confiscating bootleg CDs from street vendors is exactly
what the RIAA should be doing,".
Maybe so. But IMPERSONATING A LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY is something
which could land them in more HOT water than they can say RRUMPELSTILSKIN
if they're not careful.
As sucxh....the position of MusicRadio 102X and The Pat Cook Show is
simple. They can bust all the street vendors they want with this tactic BUT I
DRAW THE LINE WHEN IT COMES TO ENTERING MY HOME!!!
And that, ladies and gentlemen is the bottom line.
Cheers for now :-)
