Look at your own link:

UMG argued, in part, that the copying was not covered by fair use because entire CDs were copied (instead of excerpts) and that the use was a commercial one (even though no fee was charged, it was supported by ad revenue).

This use would not be commercial. It's the difference between a Slingbox and Aereo. Aereo is a commercial provider. Slingbox is DIY.

And on top of that, I can't easily prove that I bought a ROM dumper on eBay/Craigslist (or borrowed one) and re-sold it once my collection was ripped. So I would hope the burden of proof that I didn't would be on them anyway.

Furthermore, piracy is not a legal or case law term - it's more of an ethical term. And ethically, it is not wrong.

Do you think that you are being throttled because of your usage or that your particular distribution center is overloaded? I know where I'm at, I mail it one day, they receive it the next, and the next movie goes out for the following day.

It might actually be a problem on the mail delivery side, but it could be your particular distribution center. I just wanted to say it's not the universal experience. But I rarely go through more than 1 disc a week because of my viewing habits.
