I thought that you could make derivative works. That part of the rights of the public was to make derivative, aka, new, creative works. Apparently, that will get you slammed, for racketeering.
Of specific concern is a quote in the article (I couldn't verify it) that the RIAA plans to "step up law enforcement training and commit additional investigative resources in all of the cities." Wow. since when does a private organization get to step up law enforcement?"
