Oh well, looks like EMI, VIVENDI and SONY BMG, will get to write, a UK VERSION of the DMCA ACT on steriods. Oh well, there goes the neighbourhood and all user rights at the same time!:c

Review lasting for 12 months…F**K me that’s a whole year of backups without worrying about jack ****.:B

I don’t know why people would even worry about this. 12 months = stall for as long as possible. And anyway people in the UK have no copyrights on their owned media anyway its illegal to convert your CD’s to MP3’s! (Yes it is i asked on the online UK body, go look yourself if you don’t believe me, your only allowd to backup computer software and that is an out dated law there trying to get rid of) And how many people does that stop???

I think you’ll find that this covers ANYTHING that will run on a computer, audio cd and dvd videos included. And mp3 started as a pc audio standard don’t forget.
