This doublespeak is old news, really.
Here's what the EFF said back in 2006:
"It is no secret that the entertainment oligopolists are not happy about space-shifting and format-shifting. But surely ripping your own CDs to your own iPod passes muster, right? In fact, didn't they admit as much in front of the Supreme Court during the MGM v. Grokster argument last year?"
The RIAA claimed in 2005 that it was perfectly legal to rip CDs.
Not to mention that ripping CDs for personal use is very clearly fair use.
