Recording industry l.jpg
Recording Industry:

Piracy is illegal l.jpg
Piracy is illegal

“Music pirates are the first to lose because the recording industry and law enforcement officials are cracking down around the world. Do the crime and you will pay the fine or do the time.”


Lawsuit math l.jpg
Lawsuit Math

  • 3000 people sued

  • For $3000 each

3,000 / 4,000,000 • $3000 = $2.50

3,000 / 230,309,616 • $3000 = $0.039
