State getting dubious CD donations

Remember that big class action settlement from the big recording companies for conspiring to ‘fix’ prices on CD’s?? Well here’s the payoff. How do we continually get screwed like this?

Some Bay area librarians think they’re getting stuck with moldy tunes the record labels couldn’t sell.The San Francisco Public Library, for instance, will get 91 copies of a ’60s rock compilation (“Feelin’ Groovy”), 81 copies of an album by reality TV star Jessica Simpson (“Irresistible”) and 73 copies of a “Christmas with Yolanda Adams.” By contrast, it will receive only single copies of hundreds of other selections, like jazz great Louis Armstrong’s “I Love Jazz.”
