  Copyright bullshit
Sam, it looks like "the man" just threw a wrench in your theories about copyright laws (at least concerning music). Apparently ripping your CDs to your iPod is not "fair use" anymore. And listen to this gem:

"Similarly, creating a back-up copy of a music CD is not a non-infringing use...."


Not a non-infringment? I'll not non-infringe you!!

It'll never stand up in court. Mostly because if anyone tries it against me, I'll chop their knees off.
 
uh... we're not allowed to rip cds to our ipods? that is bullshit. I'd love to see them try to enforce that one.
 
Can you imagine how weird copyright and intellectual property law would get if they ever got anywhere with human cloning? Who owns the copyright to you? Your parents? I mean, they made you, after all, seems like they'd retain rights to your distribution. Can they make a backup of you in case you fail?
 
I say stick it to the man!
 
No wonder so many people steal music. "The man" just keeps finding ways to make it more gratifying to stick it to him.
 
oh gad failure!!!!!!!

DRM is such horse these days. i say disregard it
 
Proof that Apple is smarter than you.
 
See, this is why everyone needs a gun. It's like the one card you can play if some Gman dick comes knocking on your door. With all the money and power, the one thing they fear is the completely unreasonable response of someone pulling out a .35 and pointing it right at their head. Their worst fears, what makes them wake up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night, is the old image of a man in a rocking chair on his porch with a shotgun in his lap. All the words, laws, and paperwork in the world stop having meaning...
