RIAA has been gunning for online pirates and fileswappers for a long time, but now it seems to have gone analog and is targeting record stores. Pitchfork reports that RIAA recently raided Mondo Kim, one of the leading indie-music/video stores in New York City, for “allegedly selling unsanctioned hip-hop DJ mixes featuring bootlegged tracks by RIAA artists.” Five employees were arrested and the police found 500 CD-rs, 27 Music DVDs, Nine DVD burners and a scanner. Apparently, a bootleg single with some Sony Music artists was spotted by a Sony Music employee, and he alerted the cops. Those who don’t remember, Mondo Kim is also known as Kims Video to old timers.

    I wonder if W will take a post with the RIAA (and maybe MPAA too) once his term is up. Seems like an excellent fit.
