Musicians sue over 'zero pay' copyright fix



For what exactly? I bought the CD, I am copying it for my own use, so still a single licencee involved. The fact it is now in two physical locations is not relevant. I bought the right to listen to it (or at least, that's how it should work).

This won't solve the issue for piracy, as that would still be illegal if I chose to make my "copy" available to others.

Also, doesn't blank media have a so-called subsidy for the assumed copying that goes on? It used to if I recall.
