- Citing lackluster results in its aggressive Subpoena-the-Family campaign, The Recording Industry Assocation of America, or RIAA, announced today it was escalating the war against music file sharing even higher by opening its massive detention facility in the high desert of Movaje, CA. The facility, designed to indefinitely detain up to three million people suspected of illegally or even legally sharing music files on the Internet, consumes 4,000 acres of the desert region some 70 miles north of Los Angeles.
“Our goal is to eliminate the threat these thieves represent to our industry,” said RIAA President Cary Sherman. “We don’t care if the person is eight, eighteen, or eighty or unaware of the law. If we catch ‘em sharing files, we’re sending them to jail. Not just any jail. Our jail.
….Asked how the RIAA was able to afford to provide food, clothing, and medical care for up to three million detainees, he told reporters: “We can’t. But hey, they knew the risks. We assume these criminals bring their own food, clothing, and medicine with them. They’re on their own.” [Denounce Newswire]
