Well, ok, I know they don't care about PR anyway since people'll buy Evanescence and Matchbox 20 regardless. But man, is this lousy and underhanded.

Edit: Here's some choice bits for the tl;dr krew.

"Even as it suffers setbacks in the courtroom, the RIAA has over the last 18 months built up a national staff of ex-cops to crack down on people making and selling illegal CDs in the hood."

"With all the trappings of a police team, including pink incident reports that, among other things, record a vendor’s height, weight, hair and eye color, the RIAA squad can give those busted the distinct impression they’re tangling with minions of Johnny Law instead of David Geffen."

People in the hood don’t have the money to buy a real CD. And they are the only ones that will buy a real CD out of respect to the artist.

And I’m not worried, since I don’t like to leave the house. I’m never gonna buy from a bootlegger when I can just DL from my home. Sucks that the library does not have some delivery service to my house, then I’d read books more often.

"They tried to scare me," Borrayo said. "They told me, ‘You’re a pirate!’ I said, ‘C’mon, guys, pirates are all at sea. I just work in a parking lot.’ "

When I have trouble with PR, I just make my monster grow.
