The way I look at it is this: If radio waves, t.v. waves, or any kind of intrusion comes into and through my home, my personal living space....not to mention through my physical body....then I have the right to record it, photograph it, or to do with it as I please. I do not ask for RIAA's sounds to enter my personal space. For all I know, all the thousands of vaious radio waves, micro-waves, etc. may be a health hazard to me. But, I for sure believe that I can copy the radio waves if I have the capability to do so. Perhaps it would become a RIAA legal issue if I should start selling 'their' music for profit. But, they are not going to control what I do in my own home, including copying unwelcomed sounds, or even unwelcomed music. I did not ask them to send the stuff through my property; but, since they do this anyway, I will feel free to make copies of it if I want to. This is not like going to a store and shoplifting. They are bringing the stuff to me. It is the same as recording a radio program. It is the same argument they used to use when VCR's were new. It is all about their greed. I sometimes wish they would try to take me to court. If they did, I would show up with over ten thousand LP's and tapes and cd's that I have bought. I might counter sue them for selling faulty products....because I have yet to own an LP that didn't start to sound scratchy soon after it was bought. That is a faulty poduct. It would make interesting news to watch on the evening news: one little person being bullied by those rich, fat, greedy meanies from the RIAA.....Shame on them.
