Does Intel Want You To Steal Music?

from the oh-come-on dept

Someone is clearly stretching for controversy on this one. A writer over at Slate is saying that the new <A href=”″”>Intel commercial is actually supporting music stealers by showing it’s okay to burn your own CD. I hate to break it to the writer, but it is okay to burn your own CD. There’s nothing in the ad to suggest that the CD is of pirated music at all. This just appears to be someone trying to make a controversy out of nothing. Hopefully, the music industry won’t go crazy about it, but they tend to pick up on silly things like this.
