In an unprecedented move, Interscope Records allowed record stores to start selling "The Eminem Show" days before its already hurried release date because of rampant CD piracy. The difference with this record vs. RIAA claims of MP3 piracy is that "The Eminem Show" was actually being sold on street corners in New York, Los Angeles and elsewhere in significant numbers. Record stores complained to the label – demanding an early release – which resulted in over 250,000 units being sold in the first few days – a very welcomed commercial success much needed by an ailing record industry.
