XM will not concede to the RIAA quietly
that the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) is planning to sue XM radio over the use of the Pioneer Inno XM2go portable XM player. Users with the device from Pioneer are able to save music files that XM broadcasts onto the player -- the RIAA claims that the device infringes on copyright laws, and the organization should get higher music licensing fees.
recently published a letter to its users
claiming "They [The RIAA] don't get it. These devices are clearly legal. Consumers have enjoyed the right to tape off the air for their personal use for decades, from reel-to-reel and the cassette to the VCR and TiVo."
The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)
has also spoken out against
the lawsuit by the RIAA. Michael Petricone, Vice President of Government Affairs for the CEA took time to protect the rights of XM allowing users to have a device like the Pioneer Inno.

They've signed contracts with Sirius to allow recording. But in reality it was more like Sirius didn't have the resources to fight back.

The funny thing is that this could be what finally breaks XM.
I wonder if my cable company has to pay more when i timeshift or record content? If the RIAA wins this, what's next?
