RIAA redefines "fair use" again
Most users do not consider it piracy to make tape copies of their own CDs. Similarly, ripping CDs to MP3s for your iPod does not set off the "I am committing a crime" sensors in most people. Well, according to RIAA, most people have it wrong.
Recent filings dug up by the Electronic Frontier Foundation show that the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has changed its mind on what constitutes fair use. If even the RIAA hasn't had a consistent definition, how can it expect users to keep this straight?
...If the RIAA is serious, it really makes one wonder what we are really purchasing when we buy music. I can't see many people stopping their CD-to-iPod ripping since that's impractical. RIAA's latest plunge off the deep end is so counter to common sense that it's laughable. Not make copies of my own CD? You have got to be kidding.
