Everybody Pirates?

The Recording Industry of America (RIAA) is one of the most powerful lobbying groups in Hollywood, working on behalf of the record industry. It’s also one of the main proponents behind SOPA, the controversial anti-piracy act currently working its way through Congress.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) does what it says on the tin. Part of its remit is to seize domain names controlled or managed by the U.S. government or U.S.-based firms to crack down on online piracy.

It would therefore be highly ironic should one find that employees of both the RIAA and the Dept. of Homeland Security should be found to be illegally downloading copyrighted material through peer-to-peer networks.

But the RIAA in particular will be feeling the heat when its workers arrive at the office on Monday morning.

According to TorrentFreak, entire series episodes have been downloaded from BitTorrent sites, as well as software, and even gangster-rap music by the music industry representative body.
