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.

Something nasty is underneath this happy news. How do I know? Read the publication. It has a members list. I quote:

Recording Industry Association of America
Member: Hilary Rosen (2002-2003)
Member: Mitch Bainwol (2003-2009)
Alternate: John Simson (2002-2005)
Alternate: Carlos Garza (2005-2006)
Alternate: John Henkel (2006-2007)

There's no way the report writers just ran over them.
