Because there is no encryption on CD music discs, however, owners of them are free to make backup copies or shift the tracks to a digital format under the concept of fair use. “These results continue to show the flaws in the law and the process of the DMCA.

I am STILL <synonym for having produced urine output> off.
I have tons of “content” and I can not easily, quickly, or legally transform it to something useable.
I PAID for it. But I can’t “have” it.
That’s just wrong.
The Law is an idiot.
