It's not who you think.

Hilary Loves Bill

Variety has this brief, somewhat odd report:

    Just as the Grammy nominations were announced in New York, the record business was quietly celebrating the arrival on Capitol Hill of new Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist.
    Frist first became an ally of the music industry while serving as a U.S. senator from Tennessee.

    “He has a lot of friends in the industry in Nashville. It has really informed his thinking,” Recording Industry Assn. of America chair Hilary Rosen said.

    For instance, Frist has helped the RIAA crack down on piracy rings and has written to the U.S. Dept. of Justice on the subject.

    When it came to showbiz, former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott was first and foremost a friend to broadcasters.

My question is what exactly do they mean by “piracy rings” – is it real piracy rings, or RIAA piracy rings meaning college students hooked up to Kazaa.
