RIAA Files Lawsuit against XM over Pioneer 'Inno'

It looks like things are about to get REAL interesting in the music copyright wars. The RIAA has decided that suing dead grandmothers is so yesterday; now they are suing XM (the satellite radio company) over the 'Inno', a music recording and playback device from Pioneer that went on sale last month.

Does this Inno devie wrok like MP3 payers with built-in radios then? As they often have the ability to record shows for later listening... If it does, then I fail to see why it is being deemed as illegal

Now you get at the heart of the problem, Favu. I'm quite certain the RIAA would like to see MP3 players with built-in radios made illegal as well.

Don't forget every single device which has the capability to recieve radio and playback music. This is just plain annoying, i'm fed up with the RIAA.

The sad part is that they will not slow down... Each successful lawsuit encourages them to push the envelop further, bit by bit.
