It seems the recording industry is taking this obsession with having its own paramilitary force a bit too far. Apparently, after being allowed to raid Kazaa's offices and the homes of various executives by themselves, the industry's own police force felt that Sharman Networks CEO Nikki Hemming wasn't being entirely forthcoming with them -- so they started a twenty-four hours a day surveillance program for "several months," tailing her wherever she went. You would think there were laws against such things, but it seems like the recording industry gets to whatever it wants in many places.
