Ripping a CD you own is STEALING...

so says Jennifer Pariser, SonyBMG's top lawyer, in the first file sharing lawsuit to go to trial.

Quote:
Pariser has a very broad definition of "stealing." When questioned by Richard Gabriel, lead counsel for the record labels, Pariser suggested that what millions of music fans do is actually theft. The dirty deed? Ripping your own CDs or downloading songs you already own.

I know that we are into ebooks, not music. But the DRM issues and fair use issues are important enough that I decided to post this. Know your enemy.
