Some bands have been sued for doing covers, and some clubs have been sued for allowing bands to do covers without the proper licenses. So, I assume that would be right up there with singing in the shower. So yeah, technically, singing in the shower would be an unlawful free distribution of copy protected material. So would singing anywhere for that matter without the required paper work. The RIAA and MPAA are just plain greedy and evil. The mistake people make is to say oh well we should be able to download this stuff for free, or make backups, or share with our friends. Yes we should, but who would want to share content put out by these organizations with their friends? Artists could release their content into the open right? But they donâ€™t because theyâ€™re just greedy, and if theyâ€™re just greedy maybe we all need to think long and hard about if our favorite artist is really our favorite artist anymore? Maybe we should do ourselves a favor and make our own independent, open, free music. So, I donâ€™t buy music or movies. I do not download music or movies. I even refuse to pay for cable. The RIAA and MPAA make me sick and so does their content, and so do the artists. So why would I even want that crap on my hard drive?
