Head of Sony Litigation Speaks Her Mind


A little something for how big business views use of their intellectual property (does a work become void if the owner has no intelligence?).

In a recent hearing for the RIAA, Sony’s head of litigation took the stand and amazingly let slip that Sony’s opinion, legally speaking, is that any consumer who makes a copy of (ripping a CD) music is stealing.  Thanks to Ars Technica for the article.

Seems to me that the sods want to have their cake and eat it too.  They want you to pay for the same track for each platform or device you intend to listen to music with.

What do you think?
