RIAA Says "no reselling preloaded iPods"
There have been advertisements for services where you can buy a fully loaded iPod, with bands you select, and the ability to send your iPod in to be loaded up, well it looks like the RIAA is getting its panties in a twist over the whole thing and is letting the world know, that “it is bad!”
The Recording Industry Association of America — the lobbying group behind the thousands of lawsuits over unauthorized sharing and downloading of songs — says the answer is definitely no. “Selling an iPod preloaded with music is no different than selling a DVD onto which you have burned your entire music collection,” the RIAA said in a statement. “Either act is a clear violation of U.S. copyright law. The RIAA is monitoring this means of infringement. In short: seller beware.”
