U.S. Customs and Border Protection representative Mike Milne claims that Death Cab guitarist Chris Walla’s hard drive was not confiscated in order to “censor musical content coming into the United States. Period.”
“Our officers on the line are not politically motivated by what they do, they’re driven by the law … If you have recorded music — from a professional recording studio, from a professional musician, from a foreign country that’s being imported to the United States — there are certain import requirements,” he said. “If it’s worth a certain amount of money, it requires a formal entry into the United States, which means a bond needs to be posted and there needs to be formal invoices presented. There are copyright and trademark ramifications in the music industry that we enforce as well.”
Yeah whatever, dude. Blah blah blah. We all know The Man is trying to keep Chris Wall down. Because when The People hear this album, there’s going to be Revolution, man. Revo-fucking-lution, baby! Keep on keepin’ on, y’all. Fight the Power!
