Submission + - Minority Report is now real: AEG sues before crime (hollywoodreporter.com)

Caledfwlch writes: In a Minority Reportesque situation AEG, following a similar situation from the Bravado International Group of UMG, was sued concert bootleggers before they bootleg. "Just because the Mile High Music Festival this weekend in Denver hasn't happened yet, and just because the bootleggers haven't yet set up shop, doesn't mean that hundreds of individuals haven't already been sued", all as John and Jane Does with names to be filled in later. They asked "a federal court in Colorado to order the US Marshal, local and state police, off duty officers, and AEG agents to seize and impound bootlegged merchandise."
