George Bush vs. The RIAA?

Bush likes to listen to the Beatles on his Ipod. However, there's no way Bush can have a legal copy on his Ipod according to the RIAA. We got it on tape.

Earlier this week CNN reported that the Beatles might be available in the Itunes store in the near future. Until today however, they refused to put their songs online.

Since the Beatles are not available in the Itunes music store (or elsewhere), they must have come from a “ripped cd”. And that’s NOT fair-use according to the RIAA

“Nor does the fact that permission to make a copy in particular circumstances is often or even routinely granted, necessarily establish that the copying is a fair use when the copyright owner withholds that authorization. In this regard, the statement attributed to counsel for copyright owners in the MGM v. Grokster case is simply a statement about authorization, not about fair use.”

So those songs on Bush his Ipod are illegal, let’s sue

Bush: Beach Boys, Beatles, let’s see, Alan Jackson, Alan Jackson, Alejandro, Alison Krauss, the Angels, the Archies, Aretha Franklin, the Beatles, Dan McLean. Remember him?
