The Observer pushes recording industry propoganda

During a quiet Sunday afternoon rest a couple of weeks ago I flicked through my dad’s Observer, which contained an article explaining how it was illegal to copy your CDs onto your iPod, and that even though the recording industry hadn’t sued anyone yet, doesn’t mean it couldn’t.
