The RIAA Claims Another Victim

CNET Asia reported on October 16, 2006, that Creative will strip away the FM recording feature from its Zen Vision:M player with firmware revision 1.50.02. The RIAA is purportedly behind this revision.

Recording an FM broadcast would appear to be well within a user's right. Unless companies like XM stand up to the RIAA, the RIAA will continue to trample on the rights of listeners to timeshift their music.

This issue is not dissimilar to the lawsuit brought against XM by the RIAA.
