12 City Mixtape Crackdown in Progress?

January 20th, 2007 by oday

Brad Buckles, executive vice president of the RIAA’s Anti-Piracy Division in Washington, D.C is quoted in another MTV article vaguely declaring war on the mix tape scene.

We don’t consider this being against mixtapes as some sort of class of product. We enforce our rights civilly or work with police against those who violate state law. Whether it’s a mixtape or a compilation or whatever it’s called, it doesn’t really matter: If it’s a product that’s violating the law, it becomes a target.

The MTV article goes on to suggest that “RIAA has targeted 12 cities as ‘hot spots’ for pirated material” and vaguely references a RIAA company newsletter. With some digging we were able to track down this letter and thought the mixtape DJs in these cities might like to know:

Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, Providence, San Diego and San Francisco
