Sony Logic Customer Care Revealled: " Copying music you own is stealing "

Quote:

Gabriel asked if it was wrong for consumers to make copies of music which they have purchased, even just one copy. Pariser replied, "When an individual makes a copy of a song for himself, I suppose we can say he stole a song." Making "a copy" of a purchased song is just "a nice way of saying 'steals just one copy'," she said.

Countless studies have shown that the majority of music on portable music players like the iPod comes from sources other than download services. For most people, that music is comprised primarily of songs "ripped" from CD collections to MP3 or some other comparable format. Indeed, most portable music players comes with software (like iTunes) which is designed to facilitate the easy ripping of CDs. According to Pariser's view, this is stealing.
So I take it Sony|BMI will be happy to offer me free digital downloads of all CDs i purchased before the "Digitial Download Revolution" (Which I read as: same cost per song , no physical copy, less rights and much reduced quality)

You have to appreciate the logic of the same people who put root kits on winboxes (and they didnt charge us for that !!!)

U`r entitled to backup, i.e. copy, anything u own.

If u downloaded it, u can back it up to a cd and file it, and continue using the one on the pc.

It`s fudging stoopid, cos trying to imply some1 is `stealing` this sort of downloaded material can apply to any1 who may backup their whole pc - and I`d like to see them try to stop people backing up their pc.
