You Deserve Your RiVo - Popular Science

Here we go another act of the RIAA to stifle the free development of technology. They will be happy to shut down a whole new industry to "save" it's beloved copyright. I mean how often do we have to deal with this. what makes it ridiculous is people have been recording off the radio for years. Ever since they combined a cassette player and the stereo people have been recording music off the radio station. But now, because you can put it on the computer, it's suddenly wrong.

Of course they bring the same argument: "The RIAA went on to outline how RiVo would be an “immediate and substantial threat to the recording industry,” recalling 1982, when the president of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) told Congress that the VCR's “primary mission is to copy . . . material that belongs to other people.”

You know it doesn't matter what is going on, it's just the same old line brought out every time. Remember this is the group that wanted to kill digital cassette. They destroyed Napster, and birthed Kazaa and other p2p sharing. Now they want to kill RiVo. When will it stop? when someone stops them. That's when.

Then again, people are ignoring them and posting music.

This is how a dinosaur acts then the comet hits.
