Legal You think only "pirates" and "freeloaders" rail against current copyright laws? Well, think again - even the Library of Congress seemingly has had enough. The topic is recorded sound preservation, and in a 181-page in-depth study, the Library of Congress concludes that apart from technical difficulties, US copyright law makes it virtually impossible for anyone to perform any form of audio preservation. The painted picture is grim - very grim.

Just disobey. Don't follow it. Let them jail you for saving old audio, video, images from the bitbucket of history. Then you can actually have standing to fight the law both in the legal system and in the public mind.

Good people disobey bad laws.
