Universal wants to take away prisoners' mixtapes

They're suing a group that sends care-packages to prisoners that include mixtapes featuring funk, soul and hiphop artists.

America incarcerates more people than any nation in the history of the world. They are disproportionately poor and nonwhite.

"Such so-called 'mixtapes,' unless authorised by the copyright owner or owner of corresponding state law rights, are nothing more than collections of infringing, piratical compilations of copyrighted or otherwise legally protected sound recordings and copyrighted musical composition."
