Bite the Hand That Feeds You

RIAA Goes After Personal Use

When I was a kid my father had me go to a church event where they burned music because it was evil. For the first time I think he was right.

Jeffrey Howell of Scottsdale, Ariz., created a collection of about 2,000 MP3 recordings on his computer, the RIAA says that it is illegal for someone who has legally purchased a CD to convert the songs to a different format and store them on his PC.

First of all how did the RIAA find out he had these recordings. If it was part of a warrant to to determine if he was file sharing then the warrant was violated when they invaded his privacy.

Keep buying RIAA music and the only label you will have is that of criminal.
Its time we bite back.
