Recording Industry Stalked Kazaa CEO For Months

from the taking-it-a-bit-too-seriously dept

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.

    Do hackers stalk the recording industry?

    I bet recording industry executives get quite a few stalkers or pranks from hackers, though you won't hear it on this partisan website.
