The rights of the content owners do not trump those of society. The RIAA and the MPAA have a long history of trying to stifle and outright ban technology that *may* infringe on their content. If it was up to them you wouldn't be able to purchase video recording devices or MP3 players. It's because of their actions that standalone CD players that can record are not commonplace. This is just something else to add to the long list of things they have attempted to stop to protect their archaic business model.
