LOL.  Soon MP3 players will be useless if you can't even load your own CD's onto your own computer.  I'm sure the people who listen to the crap they call "music" these days will love the record companies even more then.

But I guess floggings of customers will continue until sales improve.  Brilliant.

When are the morons running the record companies going to join the rest of us in the 21st Century? The CD is going the way of vinyl and the cassette, but they keep going after their customers instead of delivering the product the way people want it. 

I for one don't see why any artist even bothers with record companies any more. Anyone with $3000  can have a professional quality recording studio in their house.  For another six grand you can buy a machine that can turn out 500 or more CD's a day which you can easily sell over the internet. 


I say let the dinosaurs die!

Unbelievable. I find it funny how copying a song from a CD to an mp3 device is now illegal according to the RIAA, but for years people made cassette copies of LP's and CD's for use in their car...yet no one was spazzing out then.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

One day the RIAA is going to wake up to the ugly truth that copyright is something offered by society to help promote the arts and culture.   It is not a guaranteed revenue stream.  The RIAA is starting to skate on thin ice.

Apparently this is a big flap over nothing, but I still wouldn't put it past the RIAA and their lawyers trying to pull something like this.

This might be a little off kilter, but there's a way around it.

You provide a list of what songs you have and burn them to CD, which you then sent via snail mail to the person who requested it.  Then they download the songs onto their hard drives.

Sure it takes a little longer, but it's a way of circumventing the whole RIAA clap trappery.

Or am I being naive and simplistic?

But how is that Fair Use?  Granted that the RIAA is a bunch of jerks, that the length of copyright is beyond what it should be, and that copyright law needs to be revamped.

Andrew, I just want to point out that I am continually impressed by your understanding of copyright law.  Trust me, lots of people don't graduate law school with the grasp of these issues you show. 

I have no problem with the RIAA trying to protect legitimate copyrights, and I understand why they are concerned.  But their continual legal douche-baggery has turned public opinion against them, and turned copyright holders into the bad guys in the public mind.

Well the RIAA should note Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution ...

Quote from: US CONSTITUTION
To promote the progress of science and useful arts, by securing for limited times to authors and inventors the exclusive right to their respective writings and discoveries


Which means the the constitution from WE THE PEOPLE provide protection for creative works. So when the RIAA goes after small time home user they are biting the hand that feeds them. What I think they don't understand is that the more you go after people for money or penalty the more those "We The People" will withhold said money and not buy your product. All businesses exist only at the whim of the customer.

And let us not forget the the US joined the BERNE CONVENTION FOR THE PROTECTION OF LITERARY AND ARTISTIC WORKS in 1989, which is a little more broad reaching as the US Constitution clearly doesn't apply in other countries.

More info can be found under Title 17 or you can go here.
