The Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Canada have been vocal about how much piracy costs the music industry in the Great White North: $30 billion.

Turns out, they just made the statistic up. "It seems that the RCMP just saw the figure which was plucked out of the bottom of the IACC and printed it as its own. Soon they'll try solving their cases by looking to see who did it on Wikipedia," the article concludes.

Imagine that. Government doing the bidding of lobbyists. Thank goodness it doesn't happen here, eh?
