Gates on DRM

I don’t have much to add to the blog I read on this so go and read it, except to point out that, once more, the world outside the US doesn’t exist:

His [Bill Gates] short term advice: “People should just buy a cd and rip it. You are legal then.”

This, of course, is simply not true in the UK and, no doubt, elsewhere. Though, once more, I do invite copyright holders to prosecute me for ripping my entire CD collection. And putting it on more than one machine.

  1. I had this conversation with my dad the other day. His opinion is that I should buy every album
    I own now, and any I buy in the future, off itunes as well. I’m speechless.
