Music Industry Launches an Anti-Piracy Campaign in the Form of a App Game

While piracy is on the decline, the music industry still considers it to be a major scourge.  Over the last couple of decades, the industry has tried everything from lawsuits to carrot-and-stick approaches to get their anti-piracy message across.  Now they want to make it a game.

It’s called Music Inc.  You’re put in the role of a manager in charge of building your music empire.  You start in your bedroom but by making the right choices, you can ascend to the level of Industry God.
