Washington Post (Quietly) Admits It Got The RIAA Personal Copying Story Wrong
from the on-page-2-of-the-corrections,-of-course dept
It took them a week of columnist Marc Fisher defending his incorrect story on what the RIAA actually said in the Howell case before the Washington Post quietly issued a correction (pointed out by Greg Sandoval over at News.com). Again, I think this is important, because even though the RIAA did a terrible job defending its position, that’s no reason to take the RIAA’s comments out of context. The other bit of good news to come out of all of this is that the RIAA now has a sense of what would happen if it actually did try to go after people for personal copying of CDs.
