A DJ in Rome was fined an incredible EUR 1.4 million for the
2,000 MP3s and 500 digital music videos he was gigging with, reports Macworld UK. (via thedigitalmusicweblog)
The Italians don't mess around: a coordinated police effort is hunting
down illegal music use, and the DJ's home was raided to prove he didn't
own CDs of the music he had.
I guess I won't complain so much about the US record industry. When in Rome . . . watch your hard drive. (Oh, and don't steal your breast implants, either.)
