The law already has older technologies like records, discs, tapes and cassettes.

The change takes effect Nov. 1.

Sponsors say the state has a serious problem with piracy from street vendors and retail locations openly selling fraudulent audio recordings and supplied by large underground manufacturing and distribution operations.

They say that deprives artists and record labels of earned profits, undercuts the business of legitimate retailers and costs New York jobs and taxes.

But Cuomo and all of his communist friends should love the poor minority selling bootleg copies on the street! If we redistribute the wealth of the evil Hollywood studio corporations to the little guy, it shoul fit perfectly with their pandering to get the little guy's vote. Where did he all of a sudden get morals against piracy?
