New York expands law against music piracy

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has signed an amendment to the New York statute against music piracy to add hard drives, flash drives, memory cards or other storage devices to the list of potential bootleg recording vehicles.

The law already has older technologies like records, discs, tapes and cassettes.

The change takes effect Nov. 1.

Sponsors say the state has a serious problem with piracy from street vendors and retail locations openly selling fraudulent audio recordings and supplied by large underground manufacturing and distribution operations.

They say that deprives artists and record labels of earned profits, undercuts the business of legitimate retailers and costs New York jobs and taxes.
