The RIAA seems to be changing its annoying tune these days, saying that ripping a CD that is lawfully yours to your own MP3 player is no longer fair game. During the US Supreme Court Grokster case, the RIAA made sure to tell us that this was OK and that they loved us. However, they're currently arguing that it's illegal and should stay that way forever and ever. I have a feeling this isn't going to stick, but it's not against this association's history to try to destroy anything that might help the consumer when it comes to digital rights. More on this when we get it.
