UK police have arrested nine people accused of using stolen credit cards to buy music they made themselves from iTunes and Amazon, fraudulently netting around $300,000 in royalties.
But the important question in this iTunes money laundry story remains unanswered - was the music any good? Or perhaps that was how they got caught. Maybe someone at Apple heard it and thought: "There's no way 700,000 people have bought this."
I believe they recorded a collection of cover versions including: The theme from the Clone Ranger, Are you Clonesome tonight?, and a selection of songs by the Rolling Clones.
