Neil Young Busts Bootleggers In 1972 Short Film

By: Renee Grant

Today we tend to think of stolen music in terms of bytes and digital downloads but the practice of pirating songs is an old one. Since the invention of recorded music, people have found ways to get the tunes they want without paying up.

In 1972, Neil Young discovered a store was selling illegal copies of his albums. The icon made a short film of himself busting the store for bootlegging.

See the video of that encounter below, it gets a bit awkward for the store employee.
