RIAA

At the tail end of last year the Recording Industry Association of America was said to be pursuing a case against a man for ripping 2,000 tracks from CDs he already owned for use in his personal computer and MP3 player. This seemed to be bonkers even for the notoriously overzealous RIAA, and it’s some relief that it turns out not be the case; they’re actually pursuing him for 2,000 tracks he downloaded illegally. However, the fact that no-one disbelieved that the RIAA would be quite content to pursue you in your own home for in any way duplicating items that you owned outright shows that any respect it might once have had as a representative body is dwindling fast, and this site (Their motto: “Proofreading is for losers who aren’t busy getting their photo taken!”) thinks it may soon be losing its funding from the record companies. It won’t be particularly missed.
