fuckers! I think that states quite clearly what they are. If I pay £15 for a CD I definitely do not plan to carry it around everywhere with me with my portable player because it’s just going to get ruined and that means I’ll have to pay another £15 for another copy of it. If I pay that much for a CD (Way way too much anyway), then I bloody well am paying for more than just the CD it’s on. I’m paying for the right to copy it and burn it and compress it and f*cking sing along to it or whatever else I choose to do with it. For that much cash I’m buying the rights to do whatever I want with it.

Ditto, as long as it is for personal use and not to make 50 copies and give to friends.
