RIAA story #55683.

Blame Canada. Hehe… Saw this on Boing Boing today and thought “Didn’t I see this before…?” Checked the date — sure enough, I had. (Thanks, Wick!) The point: In Canada, if I own a CD and you borrow it and make a copy of it that is legal private copying; however, if I make you a copy of that same CD and give it to you that would be infringement. Odd, but ideal for protecting file sharers.

Vancouver, anyone?
