Not to mention that ripping CDs for personal use is very clearly fair use.
This case is not about downloading music, but about offering it for upload by others. Whatever one may believe about the legality, or even the morality of ripping your own CDs, it's clearly not acceptable to make music tracks available for other people to download from you, is it?
