High Court Ruling Makes Copying CDs And DVDs Illegal Again | Music News


A law granting consumers the right to copy purchased CDs and DVDs onto their MP3 player, computer or other devises has now been overturned. The law, introduced last October, allowed users to recreate CDs and DVDs for their own personal use, but still remained a crime to share any copies with friends or family. The new ruling makes it illegal to copy CDs, MP3s, DVDs, Blu-rays and e-books. CEO of UK Music, Jo Dipple said: “Last month, the High Court agreed with us that government acted unlawfully when it introduced an exception to copyright for private copying without fair compensation. We therefore welcome the court’s decision today to quash the existing regulations”.
