The good folks at the Recording Industry Association of America – the group responsible for Napster’s demise – has identified 12 cities that it calls “hot spots” of pirated music.

With the exception of Providence, R.I., it looks strangely like a list of the country’s 12 largest cities.

And yes, cloudy San Diego is one of them.

(So are Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Houston, Dallas and other major cities that apparently not only have a lot of residents, but a lot of music pirates, too.)

So, San Diego, a head’s up: The RIAA is going to “step up law enforcement training and commit additional investigative resources in all of these cities in the coming year.”
