RIAA now says ripping is illegal


IT'S TIME TO BACKPEDAL for the DRM infecting music industry, but this time, it is on record in black and white.

Luckily, its hypocrisy is as boundless as its greed. Remember when the RIAA (Record Industry Association of America) was arguing in front of the US Supreme Court in the Grokster case, and it said that ripping a CD that you lawfully own to your MP3 player was "perfectly lawful"? Well, now it isn't.

The RIAA is now arguing that it is illegal, and wants to get it legally shut down. RIAA now says ripping is illegal
