I thought the folks at Against Monopoly might get a kick out of this, if you hadn't already seen it: a well-known and respected mainstream publication off-handedly endorsing copyright "abuse".
The January 2010 issue of Better Homes and Gardens had an article called "25 easy ways to conquer clutter"; number 20 on that list (on page 41) says the following:
"Convert your compact discs into digital music files, either yourself or using a service such as ripdigital.com or riptopia.com. (They give you materials to send in in your CDs, convert them to digital, and burn them on DVDs for you.) Then, donate or* sell the returned CDs.* --Sabrina Soto, host of HGTV's Real Estate Intervention"
Isn't that technically illegal? Is this an example of a dead-tree publication "getting it", or simply an example of naiveté in the face of the absurdity of copyright?
