But after over a decade’s wait, Dr. Dre’s third studio album Detox has finally seen a small uncovering, as the mega Grammy Award winning rapper/producer revealed the title of the record’s first single on Sunday night, Under Pressure featuring Jay- Z.
According to MTV news, Dre confirmed the track at Boston’s Fenway Park, during the Red Sox’s opening night. While the legendary icon took part in some batting practice, he admitted that Under Pressure would be the perfect tune to listen to while getting into the zone at-bat.
“Absolutely, that would be it. ‘Under Pressure” — it’s so fitting,” said Dre, who was there with Interscope head Jimmy Iovine to promote Dr. Dre’s Beats by Dr. Dre headphones.
Yesterdays release of 261 more subpeonas involved a 12 year old girl.
Brianna LaHara, a 12 year old girl from New York City, was charged yesterday for downloading copyright material on Kazaa.
Brianna did not think she was doing anything illegal as her family actually pays a service fee to Kazaa.
“I thought it was OK to download music because my mom paid a service fee for it. Out of all people, why did they pick me?” Brianna told Fox News.
The RIAA has no idea how old anyone is, as no personal information is every gathered. Whether or not the RIAA is going to go forth with this charge is unknown at this time.
Update: The family has settled with the RIAA For $2000US.
The RIAA said it will not target small time music swappers on popular P2P services. The decision was given in writing after Sen. Norm Coleman called the investigation “excessive.”
“RIAA is in no way targeting ‘de minimis’ users,” wrote Cary Sherman, the group’s president, in a letter the subcommittee released Monday. “RIAA is gathering evidence and preparing lawsuits only against individual computer users who are illegally distributing a substantial amount of copyrighted music.”
The RIAA has not said how many files you must be sharing before they decide to come after you. If convicted, damages per song could carry penalties of up to $150,000.
