    A "well known" Italian DJ has been ordered to cough up Europe's biggest fine ever for music downloading after being found in possession of and using thousands of illegally copied music files.

    The DJ must pay a record €1.4m ($1.8m), the Italian financial police have ruled. He also faces criminal prosecution, law enforcement officials said.

    The fine follows a raid mounted by Italian police earlier this week on a popular nightclub in Rieti, a town between Rome and Assisi. During the investigation, officers seized over 2,000 MP3 files and 500 music videos.

    FIMI, the Italian equivalent of the Recording Industry Ass. of America (RIAA), welcomed the whopping fine. "We hope this precedent will serve as a deterrent for those who are thinking of doing the same," said FIMI director Enzo Mazza.

    "This DJ was touring clubs and making money out of the music he played - while those who had invested time, talent, hard work and money into creating the music in the first place did not get a cent," he added.

    Earlier this month, a French teacher was fined €10,200 for illegally sharing music files - the first prosecution in France for unauthorised file sharing using a P2P network.

    To date, the RIAA has issued lawsuits against more than 8,500 named and unnamed individuals in the US, all alleged to have illegally distributed music files using P2P software. ®

    Its pretty much just him and Nu-NRG. Is Mario Piu considered famous?

    I used to be like that, before I learned how to be smooth around girls. You don’t go begging for kisses on the cheek like some schlubby pussy. You just gotta sock ‘em in the arm and go “Hey, does this rag smell like chloroform to you?” And then it’s Miller time. - Film Drunk

    Not really, neither is Ricardo Ferri. GREAT producers, but not necessarily "well known" djs.

    What about Benny Benassi? He's the only other well known Italian DJ I've heard of.

    Well, "Satisfaction" seems to have fizzled away, so he's probably washing cars with Snow & Inner Circle right now.....

    this is great news.. I hope they make him pay... maybe this will make a comeback to the record stores and people will start spinning records again.. Instead of that wack ass notalent cd spinning bullshit i keep seeing everywhere..

    of course this does set precident for the cops to bust anyone who is playing anyones records whether they paid for them or not..
    if people are getting paid off playing other peoples records the producers are entitled to their share of the money...
    maybe dj's will stop charging or face fines.. that way we can see our favorite dj's for cheap instead of inflated prices due to agents and artist fees..

    peace
    thanice one

    I was thinking either Picotto, Mario Piu, or Ricky Ferry, but I read somewhere else that BXR said they're not involved in anyway, so I don't think it's any of those..
