It seems the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) manages to make themselves look more and more like a joke every year. After the huge push to sweep away music piracy some of us felt we were safe. However, according to recent sources, the RIAA has cracked down on several people claiming that the music that they copied to their hard drive using a CD Ripping program is an illegal copy of copyrighted music. What becomes even more confusing is that Microsoft, whom we would all assume is well versed in copyright laws, has included a CD Ripping software program to copy music from your CD's to the hard drive of your Xbox 360.
UPDATE: Due to information claiming that the original source is innacurate, this is a rumor. Further information claims that the lawsuit is from illegal downloading not ripping CDs. However, there is some truth to CD Ripping being illegal.
