RIAA to You: "PWN3D!!"

The RIAA, for those of you who haven't got it yet, needs to be drug out back and shot like the feral dogs they are. The Electronic Frontier Foundation, who are your friends in the white hats, caught the RIAA trying to argue that you don't have the right to copy your own CDs to your iPod. Money quote:
So your ability to continue to make copies of your own CDs on your own iPod is entirely a matter of their sufferance. What about all the indie label CDs? Do you have to ask each of them for permission before ripping your CDs? And what about all the major label artists who control their own copyrights? Do we all need to ask them, as well?

P.S.: The same filing also had this to say: "Similarly, creating a back-up copy of a music CD is not a non-infringing use...."

The EFF needs your support to win this fight against an organization that has neither your interests nor the interests of content creators at heart. The RIAA represent the middlemen between you and the artist. Remember that.
