Recording Industry Suing Flea Markets

The recording industry has widened its legal offensive. Now it’s suing owners of flea markets. “The lawsuit filed by the Recording Industry Association of America charges that the market has made only token efforts to deter the sale of counterfeit and pirated recordings, and says that, like many flea markets, Columbus profits by virtue of its underground reputation as a marketplace for cheap discs. ‘There are 3,000 flea markets in the country, and at many of them, vendors are offering home-burned CD’s or other illegal recordings’.”
