Hooray! Finally, the site called Audiomaxx has been raided, arrests been made, and shut down. For how long? I have no idea, but let’s hope forever. This site has been around for a long time and has been known to sell massive amounts of pirated material. Meaning, they sell CD’s and DVD’s by tons of hard working artists and make a grip of money without giving any of that money to the folks that created the goods in the first place. I heard the news yesterday evening and wanted to make sure to spread the word. I’ve never been a fan of that site and always hoped that it would be shut down. Instead of focusing efforts on individuals that download music and movies and never make a profit, authorities should spend their time on sites like Audiomaxx that are the true pirates. There’s a ton more information on this bust HERE and HERE.
Many artists and D.J.’s were very outspoken about hating this site, as well as many of the groups that actually rip music to create mp3′s. Nobody likes people making money off pirating….except probably the people that are lame enough to do it.
*Note: Audiomaxx specialized in ripping off reggae artists.
