CD Ripper ‘Incites Law Breaking,’ Says British Regulator

Barence writes “A British firm has been banned from advertising a CD ripping device because it ‘incites law breaking.’ The Brennan JB7 is ‘a CD player with a hard disk that stores up to 5,000 CDs.’ The adverts for the Brennan highlight the convenience of ripping your entire CD collection to the device – much like we’ve all been doing for years on our PCs, iPods and other MP3 players. The Advertising Standards Authority has banned the ads after concluding ‘that the ad misleadingly implied it was acceptable to copy CDs, vinyl and cassettes without the permission of the copyright owner.’”
