AAMP Acquires Rosen Electronics and Continues to Provide Possibilities

CLEARWATER, Fla., May 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In April of 2015, several large auto manufacturers made an announcement that left some scratching their heads and others seething mad. Under the cover of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), they are pushing to make it illegal for car owners to modify the vehicles they own in any way. If the idea of tinkering with your vehicle makes you nostalgic, you're not alone. American ingenuity, and a hands-on approach to improvement, is at the heart of our culture, it's the thread that makes this country so great, the fire that has ignited years of innovation, fueled by the aftermarket auto industry. Since 1908, when the Model T began to inhabit driveways across America, tinkering with vehicles has captured the hearts and souls of people across the nation, it's a hobby for many, a living for some, and for all of those people, it's their passion.
