The AU government gets with the programme, proposes to make ripping CDs to MP3 players legal, as well as taping off radio or TV for domestic purposes… though you’ll be legally obliged to wipe the tape after watching it. Uh huh.
“Hey did you catch Monday night’s Six Feet Under?”
“Yeah but it’s on too late, so I taped it and watched it the next day.”
“Can you lend it to me?”
“I’d love to but the copyright laws say I’m not allowed to.”
Meanwhile the Brits have trained sniffer dogs to detect DVDs, for the purposes of fighting piracy.
