corporate mix CD's

Ever since mix tapes came on the scene, the RIAA and the Federal Government have been ticketing and fining small retailers for carrying them. At first it was not a big issue but now that the music industry is involved, it is unjust.

This day in age the music industry is giving mix CD deejays new music to put on their mix CDs as a promotional tool. They even pay a lot of these deejays to have their music on the mix CD. These deejays then go out and sell their CDs to people and retailers. But retailers get hit with heavy fines for carrying these CDs. This does not make any sense. The big corporate monster of a label pays deejays, deejays in turn sell their CDs to stores and the stores get a ticket. Sounds crazy, but it is 100% true. What is sad is that the big wigs at these labels are probably chilling with the police chief in their area.

This is just another case of the man sticking it to the small guy.
