UK Government legalises ripping CD's

TechEYE: "In an astonishingly forward thinking policy, the government has vowed to decriminalise the copying of CDs into digital formats.

Some 13 years after Napster popularised the use of digital music, turning much of the population into hardened criminals, the UK government has decreed that those transferring music between different devices will no longer be pilloried. Presumably taping some of the top 40 off the radio will be given the all-clear too." (Culture)
