OK, so if they think that, then the PS3, Windows Media Centre and all other CD ripping hardware/software would be deemed illegal, I can't see them securing this.
Stupid ****ing w****rs
Tell 'em they can lick my left sack. The end. *Goes back to playin' CoD4*
Fine then. I won't rip any more CDs. I'll just have to re-download Limewire.
All the payouts to legal company's like Nero will be too large.
Wow, put an end to this thread :p

Regardless of the facts of the case in question, they're wrong. Fair use prevails.
Itunes rips my CD's. Blame apple. I tried to fight it but the urge to have something I pay for on my ipod is just too strong, Please forgive me.:(
Not to mention that some countries tax blank CDs to offset the 'costs' of downloading music.
This is nothing new I knew about this for years..I tell it to anyone I meet asking me about download music...If it illegal to do both ways...DO the cheaper way possible..
Also did you know that that you can only have 15 people over to watch a dvd...Any more than that is also illegal..

Ripping CD's here as always been illegal and of coarse has never been and never will be enforced.
It's not illegal to rip a CD with no protection on it...anyone can go into the unprotected CD and copy the WAV files onto your computer...Quote:

Of course, this isn't going to work. Because when you have legal download services out there offering files that are just like those who were ripped off a CD...isn't that kind of contradicting? And if I'm not mistaken, isn't okay to make a personal back-up copy? On top of that, who the hell still carries around a CD player?
