Left Hand, Meet Right Hand

The RIAA is preparing to go back to school with its own "educational video" about copyright. Unfortunately, it can't get its facts straight.

An FAQ-section question asks whether someone who has bought music has the right to ever upload or download music. The RIAA's answer says that it's okay for productive or scholarly works. The video's critics say the response makes no mention of allowable uses for home recordings, even for individual use, which the law allows.

I hear Luba wailing "Break Free" in the background...
