Mitchell Silverman, an attorney in Florida, noticed in a recent news-story that GW Bush's twin daughters presented him with a mix CD of exercise music for Father's Day. Since the record industry maintains that making and distributing mix CDs is a copyright infringement, Silverman sent their legal offices a letter on letterhead asking them to sue the first twins for "stealing music."
As you will see from the attached article from today’s The Miami Herald, President George W.
Bush’s daughters made him a presumably illegal compilation CD, a so-called “mix CD,” as a
Father’s Day present. As the article, at http://www.miamiherald.com/692/story/142726.html states,
“[President] Bush's twin daughters, gave him [as a Father’s Day present] a CD they had made for
him to listen to while exercising.”
This is a serious violation of copyright. As you know, whichever of your member organizations that
are right-holders for the copied musical works may be entitled to statutory damages of $150,000.00
per musical work copied.
I hope and expect that you at the RIAA will display the same vigor in prosecuting this matter and
protecting the rights of your rights-holders that it has displayed in enforcing those rights against
other alleged violators.
