RIAA doesn’t believe in Fair Use
In the United States, new legislation aims to ensure that the doctrine of fair use of media remains available to its citizens without breaking the law in the process.
The current US Copyright Act (DCMA) does not make this explicit.
However, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has attacked the new bill, suggesting that it would legalise piracy.
Ars Technica’s article puts this debate in focus :
the RIAA is trying to preserve protections for its interests that run counter to how a civil society embraces freedom and responsibility.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation has a special section on the DCMA.
