RIAA No Longer Needs A Warrant To Shutdown Pirate Pressing Plants

    So, it turns out having the government on your side re: people pirating material has been working out for the RIAA: Thanks to new legislation in California, the RIAA, and federal investigators, no longer need warrants to seize pressing plants that are making copyrighted material. That’s right, the laws of the U.S. don’t mean anything if the RIAA thinks you’re making unlawful copies of Fast Five. I guess we should be trying to stop illegal pressing plants, but if we can’t shutdown corrupt bakers on Wall Street because they can legally wrangle their way out of it, then how the hell do we change the legal system to shut down CD pressing plants?
