… but news to me.

According to the Electronic Frontier Foundation Deep Links blog, the RIAA Says Ripping CDs to Your iPod is NOT Fair Use.

This, despite counsel having said to the Supreme Court during the MGM v. Grokster case:

“The record companies, my clients, have said, for some time now, and it’s been on their website for some time now, that it’s perfectly lawful to take a CD that you’ve purchased, upload it onto your computer, put it onto your iPod.”

Man … it’s a good thing the Supersuckers are still indie … otherwise, they might run afoul of their own lawyers for selling iPods loaded with Supersuckers music on eBay!
