I clearly stated creating a 2nd item for personal use or lending the item out to "friends or family that need it" as good things and recreating the items for selling them as a bad thing, noone is arguing that its good copying and reselling technology, movies or music without paying the copyright holders their share. Copying and using the technology, movies or music, you bought, as you see fit is what the RIAA is trying to stop people from doing, they want people to pay for every copy of an item you make. So if you have 2 cars, an iPod, 2 sterio's and a media center PC, they would want you to pay 6 times for the CD or DVD you copy for use in all of these media players.

I don't ask whats right according to sharktank tactics company's use, I ask you if you think its so bad for a person to use the item he bought in whatever way he sees fit and lends it out or shows it to other people he knows.

Thats what this can be compared with, showing of something you bought and in alot of cases where the RIAA sued, lending out music or video's that were bought by a person and lended out to family and friends or plain simple replicated from an audio CD to MP3 format so the person could listen to his bought music on his iPod or in his car.

Or like with me, I digitized my entire CD and DVD collection so I could store the CD's and DVD's in a safe environment where they couldn't be scratched or worn out by exesive use.

From what I understood the purpose of this was to prevent people from putting copyrighted music on to the soundtrack of their videos and then sharing them on these file sharing services. Which could have the effect of circumventing the settlements that the RIAA made with file sharing services like Napster and Kazaa

The audio put in these video backgrounds is usualy recorded with a webcam microphone. Noone would listen to that asif it was music. All its good for is an element of the mostly rediculous video's.

Do gaming industry people sue kids and other people for making video's, video clips in some cases entire commedy series (lookup Red vs Blue from RedRooster, is already up to episode 70 and Uses Microsoft Halo and Halo 2)?

Same goes for music and movies imho. If your just creating something with the music or video you bought for the fun of it, without looking to make money from it, then there should be no legal objection to it.

The RIAA is against any and all useage of music and video's owned by their members that isn't singular per license. They don't want you to backup your media without paying an extra license, they don't want anyone other then you, who bought the media, to listen or view it without buying a license per person viewing it, they don't want anything done with it without them getting even more money out of it.

As stated before, by an artist, the RIAA and its members don't give a hoot about the actual creators of the media in the first place, the actual artists get very little for their work and in alot of cases they get massive debts instead of making money, eventhough the music and other media they created has generated billions of revenue for the record labels.

The fight against the RIAA and record labels isn't about protecting the artists at all, its about massive corporate entity's milking their clients and artists for every penny and using Fascist tactics to do so.

The RIAA and Music Industry use the same methods to generate money and revenue as Organized Crime does.

This is truly dissapointing, my friends put up videos of our university performances on there, we play jazz, most of what we put up there are jazz and latin standards so I guess this will be the end of that.......

It only really bothers me because I send the links of me playing to my cousins down south, its not like we try and advertise ourselves through it, we do that in person, its far better off to have your own webpage for bookings, especially in the Australian Jazz Scene.

Anyway, if anyone is interested in having a look at our tunes, check on www.youtube.com for any videos from saxyanimal, I'm the Trombone/Trumpet player though, not the Saxophonist. We're only young guys, but we can pull off some pretty hip swing!

The video of us playing Wes Montgomery's song "Full House" is probably the best one on there, or you can check my other band playing John Coltranes "Mr P.C"

Enjoy it while it lasts!
