Michigan Bar Hit with 500 Copyright Violations After Illegal Downloads at Juggalo Show
A huge fan of Three 6 Mafia managed to rack up 500 copyright violations while attending a Juggalo Valentine's Day Show at a Michigan bar...
After some sleuthing, Scott Bell, the talent buyer for the Lansing-based bar, matched the date to a a local Juggalo Valentine's Day hip-hop show he'd held at Mac's.
Bell told Vice,
"Each violation occurred between 9:40 and 10:30 PM, so what appears to have happened is that somebody was torrenting or downloading from the Mac's Wi-Fi.
"Someone must have gotten the Wi-Fi password or the DJ got it from the bartender. Apparently, they needed to download all of Three 6 Mafia's discography because every single piece of paper is a Three 6 Mafia song, without exception. From there they also downloaded Young Buck's Straight Outta Cashville, which is also a classic."
So what happens now? Bell explained to Vice,
Well, we’re gonna change the password to the number “3” then the number “6” and be done with it. But we have changed the password. Hope I don’t hear from Comcast any further. From here on out I have to tell all the DJs we book not to download music. I think we might frame a couple of [the notices]. We might frame the “Slob on My Knob” one."
