According to the RIAA they are. BitTech have an editorial on a report by the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation). It seems the RIAA have now decided that we aren't entitiled to use the CD's we purchase in any other way than the orginal meduim itself. This means no MP3ing, no backups, nothing. Evil or Very Mad

Hmmm. Well, I guess that means that I'll just have to stop buying CDs altogether now Sad I already cut down quite a bit since they started releasing broken CDs along side normal ones and not allowing you to get a refund if they did not work in your player.

It's a good job you can buy music online directly from some bands Smile Let's hope more start doing that so we can finally get rid of the RIAA Smile
