Some quotes from the article:



Announced yesterday: Sony Music — now known as Sony/BMG — has to pony up a $10 million settlement with New York state. It should be $100 million. And this won't be the end of the investigation. Spitzer's office is looking into all the record companies. This is just the beginning.

But what a start: Black-and-white evidence of plasma TVs, laptop computers and PlayStation 2 consoles being sent to DJs and radio programmers in exchange for getting records on the air.

Not just electronic gifts went to these people, either. According to the settlement papers, the same people also received expensive trips, limousines and lots of other incentives to clutter the airwaves with the disposable junk that now passes for pop music.

More memos: "We ordered a laptop for Donnie Michaels at WFLY in Albany. He has since moved to WHYI in Miami. We need to change the shipping address."

http://www.sohh.com/thewire/read.php?contentID=7349

here's a more in-depth link

"For over four decades, federal law has forbidden radio programmers from taking payoffs or anything of value in exchange for playing specific songs on the air."

that's why it's big, because these companies will finally be taken down and slowly but surely things will change
