Apparently Everyone Who Rips A CD Is A Criminal Now

Yet another important article on the RIAA’s shenanigans I found via Boing Boing. The RIAA is attempting to claim in its most recent filing that ripping a CD to your computer is not covered under fair use, and is actually unlawful!

In the article, it is pointed out that previously the RIAA has said that ripping a CD to put on your iPod is completely legal.

I don’t even have the words to explain my rage at reading this. How much longer will people let this continue???

Read the article here, and while you are at it, donate to the EFF to help protect your electronic rights.
