A pirate’s life for me!

Did you know that according to the International Federation of Phonographic Industries, there’s a 1-in-3 chance that the next CD you buy is an illegal copy? This is assuming that you’re buying your CDs from market vedors in Brazil, China, India, Taiwan, Indonesia, Mexico, Spain or any of the other “worst countries for the sale of illegal music,” or the best countries if you look at it another, less legal way. 85% of the music sold in China is illegal. Then again, I think the government there considers about 95% of legal music illegal anyway, so no big whoop.
Best part of the story, though, is when a representative from Universal Music International compares CDs to drugs, stating “If fake pharmaceuticals were sold on street corners it would be stopped immediately.” Because, you know, one bad CD and your heart could explode!
