XM will not concede to the RIAA quietly

DailyTech earlier reported 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. 

XM 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.

Are sure sure they've gone up? I'm actually quite pleased with the prices of CDs these days. Most new stuff is £10 for about 16 tracks and only about £3-6 for older stuff. I'm sure it used to cost more than that. Maybe it's just the outrageous cost of music downloads (at 79p a track wherever you go - more than a CD!), which I think really qualifies as outrageous since the record companies are saving more money there and charging more, but CDs actually seem quite cheap. You get the highest quality sound too for that, a backup already made for you, and you can convert it to a nice DRM-free format for your MP3 player.
