It may sound like a new electronica group, a la Thievery Corporation, but instead the Mix Tape Amnesty are an organization that… well, let their own website explain:
The amnesty was created in an effort to finally rid the country of illegally taped music. Although technology has evolved, the law on this issue has remained unchanged and these mix-tapes still constitute a threat to artist royalties. The amnesty allows otherwise law-abiding citizens to destroy evidence that could, if left untouched, result in prosecution, fines – even a lengthy custodial sentence.
If you wish, you can actually apologize to the artist of your choice. Will this become a North American phenomenon? Will Justin Bieber fans be forced to comply? You can find out more about their humorous mission by clicking to MixTapeAmnesty.ie.
