RIAA says ripping your own CD isn't (is not) fair use

I’m not one for more laws (are you paying attention Mr. President?), but perhaps we could get some legislation that puts these moronic, withering, old-world industry lawyers in their place. Via Boing Boing, we get news that the EFF has unearthed some interesting wording in the RIAA latest filing. Basically, when they said (in MGM v Grokster) that ripping a CD and transferring that to your iPod was fair use, they didn’t really mean that. Lovely.. now we have to fight for rights we already have.
