RIAA Hires Artists, Then Sends In the SWAT team

Slashdot | RIAA Hires Artists, Then Sends In the SWAT team

So, here’s the deal: some artists got hired to do a “mixtape” by the RIAA. The RIAA then turned around and busted said artists in a SWAT-style raid.

Lovely.

Just remember, kids, that right on the RIAA site is the following: “Trade group that represents the US recording industry”. Note that “artists” isn’t part of the the name, or the mission. It’s all about protecting the industry.
