Via BoingBoing,

The head of the IFPI in Finland (record industry shills) has told government that it’s fine that the new Finnish copyright law may make it impossible to move music to your Mac or GNU/Linux box, since this is a “privilege” and those people can just buy CD players.

“Now, we need to understand that listening to music on your computer is an extra privilege. Normally people listen to music on their car or through their home stereos”, says Kyyrae and continues; “If you are a Linux or Mac user, you should consider purchasing a regular CD player.”

I’m just… speechless.
