Feds nab NIN bootleg merchant

bmoloney sent in this 93x news blurb which cites Blabbermouth (which in turn cites the Associated Press) concerning
a 27-year-old Lafayette, Louisiana, man [William F. Pritchard, Jr] faces possible prison time and more than $50,000 in restitution after admitting he copied hundreds of "bootleg" concert recordings -- including those by Nine Inch Nails and Korn -- in a case that has nabbed music retailers in three states, including Alabama.

On one hand, Ouch! On the other hand, if he was selling bootlegs, that's really stupid, and kind of rude. I've certainly got (more than?) my fair share of live recordings, but I don't burn them and put them up on eBay.
