UK music fans can copy own tracks

BBC NEWS | Entertainment | UK music fans can copy own tracks

So it's now not going to be illegal to rip a CD in order to store / play it on your iPod / PC. That was illegal before!? Talking of which I just loved this quote, it kind of sums it all up:
"In February, music industry investigators claimed someone in almost every street in every town in the UK was illegally copying music and film."
When the majority of the population are breaking the law that usually means there is something wrong with the law. Interestingly there are moves taking place in the US which will make it a Federal offence to copy any copyright material even if the copyright isn't currently valid! You just gotta love IP law.
