yes.... this is another "RIAA SUX!!!" topic. apparently now they are saying that copying a CD that YOU OWN to your computer in order to listen to the songs on your iPod (and probably whatever other PMP you may own) is unlawful. they are getting too far out of hand now. If i remember correctly.... wasn't the whole schpiel about downloading copywrighted material (namely music) off the internet was violating the DMCA and mostly due to the fact that you don't have the rights to have the music since... basically.... you didn't buy the CD in the first place? now they're saying that even if you buy the CD, you can't do anything with the data on the CD other than listen to it on your computer or in your stereo? Someone has to punt the CEO of the RIAA, or whatever you'd call him, square in the groin...... knock his ego down a few pegs. http://www.macworld.co.uk/news/index.cfm?home&NewsID=13879 think the most defining 2 paragraphs of that news article are these right here: so..... basically.... the RIAA wants us to use our PMP's as portable hard drives, and not PMP's? yippie..... we buy $200 MP3 players that turn into nothing more than a paper weight with an LCD Screen (mostly in the case of iPod's).
