More Music Industry Copyright Madness

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

From Michael Geist – Cdn Music Industry Assoc Chair: Format Shifting, User Generated Content Keep Piracy Sites Going.  According to J.P. Ellson, the Chair of the Canadian Council of Music Industry Association and board member of the industry’s Balanced Copyright for Canada site,”the provisions of the Bill that permit user-generated content and transferring digital files to other formats would in fact, keep the pirate flag flying“.

So I’m to be considered a pirate for writing my own content and/or actually listening to music I buy on a device of my own choosing!

When will we ever be free of these lying theiving cheating pious bastards?
