Good Question

The debate over file swapping has been raging for quite some time. A recent story states the RIAA is going to sue actual users. In response is this comment on Slashdot. The user posts two questions, but the one that I find most interesting is this one: “If User A has a Old97s CD and legit MP3 copies of the disc on his machine and I also own the same Old97s CD and download his copies (instead of burning my own) did either of us break a law?” Personally, I see nothing wrong with this (given they both own the CD), however, I think the RIAA would see it quite differently. The reason? The RIAA isn’t too hip on fair use.
