The RIAA Hits Below The Belt

Trouble is brewing this holiday season for all you CD rippers out there…“the industry maintains that it is illegal for someone who has legally purchased a CD to transfer that music into his computer…The basic principle in the law is that you have to distribute actual physical copies to be guilty of violating copyright. But recently, the industry has been going around saying that even a personal copy on your computer is a violation.”  What kind of democracy are we living in if we’re legally forced to buy additional digital copies just to be portable?
