RIAA's condemnation of cds to mp3's not new

NewYorkCountryLawyer writes "For those of you who may have bought Cary Sherman's retraction of SONY BMG's litigation chief's sworn testimony and of the RIAA's brief in Atlantic v. Howell, or who joined C/Net in arguing that the Howell brief didn't mean what it said, I suggest you read this carefully researched article on Wired.com, which demonstrates that the RIAA's attack on the legality of copying CD's to MP3's is nothing new, and that the "retraction" is merely a public relations gimmick meant to deflect fire from the public outrage engendered by the RIAA's position."
