RIAA President Decries Fair Use

nextdrewsaid What Cary Sherman... (486 comments)

...has to say is all well and good (well not really, but I was looking to coin a phrase). I find it interesting where the artists stand on how their work is disseminated to the masses, and what they think is fair usage. I'm in the "For me, fair use is being able to backup my CDs onto my hard drive and encode them in any format I please for my mp3 player" boat, but it goes with out saying not all people/entities are. To hell with the RIAA anyways, basically it's another form of insidious governance.
