"DJs are the latest targets in the war against illegal copying of published music.
ARIA the Australian Recording Industry Association has set up a new licence to let DJs format shift their music to use at gigs.
Yep, they need to pay a licence fee to copy music they already own legally to their iPods, laptops, or compilation CDs.
Criminal penalties for DJs involved in music piracy are up to sixty thousand dollars and 5 years imprisonment. There are also on-the-spot fines of over one thousand dollars."
Sets a bad precident, and also is a nod into the effective 'hiring' of a track you get when you make a purchase that DRM was trying so hard to regulate. With some online stores now selling in mp3 format, I'm surprised to see this happening.
