. . . and today's news (CNN: "Studios sign off on movie downloads") doesn't make me feel any better.
If I buy a song or a movie or an audiobook, it's MINE. I should be allowed to do anything I want with it. In particular, I should DEFINITELY be allowed to put it on my cell phone rather than my iPod. In fact, I should definitely be allowed to put it on BOTH of them. Additionally, when I upgrade my phone or when the DVD I just burned dies, I should be allowed to copy it AGAIN onto my media; I should NOT be locked out and forced to buy a new copy!
I know this is a bigger issue, and on the bigger discussion I'm convinced that copyright/IP laws do much more harm than good. However, even without that, if I'm not distributing my purchsed media to someone else, I should be allowed to do anything I want with it.
(on a related note, yesterday I tried to move some MIDI (that's right, MIDI) files (ringtones) over from my old phones to my new phone; to my surprise, those MIDI files were copy protected! The phone refused to let me move them! And this is an UNLOCKED and UNBRANDED PHONE! We're not talking about Justin Timberlake's latest howling -- we're talking about 3 second long MIDI RINGTONES! Hell is on earth)
