Tension grows between labels and digital radio

Friday, January 13, 2006

Here we go again... The f-ing RIAA... CNET has this article about how "Tension is growing" and talks about the SIRIUS S50 and the new XM Mp3 units. The entry of satellite and digital radio into the technological mainstream is increasing tension with the record industry, which wants new rules governing how consumers can make digital copies of songs from the airwaves. When Congress set the rules for Internet and other digital broadcasts in 1998, it gave record companies the right to royalties from Internet and satellite radio broadcasts. That's set up a patchwork of different rules for different new media companies, even as technology has brought the way consumers use their services more closely together. For now, the most pressing issues focus on whether digital broadcasts can be legally recorded and archived. For instance, a new device from Sirius radio called the S50 lets people save individual songs. Sirius and the RIAA are in negotiations over this device. "Our concern remains that this is an effort to stifle technology before it has a chance to grow," said Consumer Electronics Association spokesman Jeff Joseph. "It has never been illegal to record a song off the radio in the context of fair use." Back in 1983 I recorded hours of radio and still have the songs today.. I have an S50, I can not share my "SIRIUS Songs" off it. I also have a line in on my PC that I can record hi-digital audio into right off FM, is the RIAA going to go after DELL.... The RIAA needs to wake up and notice that people are pissed at them and are not buying music because they are so greedy.. (Sorry end of my rant)
