The music industry has declared that if you buy a Music CD and copy songs onto your MP3 player you have violated the Copy right laws. If you read the fine print on a CD you will see that according to the Music Industry the Music you purchase is for you use only and you are not allowed to share with others. Does this interpertation mean that if I am listening to a CD and give the CD to a friend to listen to the song I am in violation of the Copy right laws? According to the Music Industry I am.

The people of the RIAA can slither back into their slimy little pus pots! They have completely destroyed any case they had for protecting musicians or the music they make. They are as good for music and musicians as buggy whips are to transportation. Spit on an RIAA idiot today!

Yes, I guess you are. Another example of corporate greed, IMHO. God forbid if someone copied a CD and gave it to a friend or relative and they lost a few bucks. I'm not saying make multiple copies and sell it, I know that's illegal and it' wrong, I get that, but I've made copies and my old vinyl records onto cassettes or copied cassettes in the past and I've taped shows on the VCR for my daughter already while she was working. I haven't done it with CDs or DVDs so far, though. Annie
