Howell, or who joined C/Net in arguing that the Howell brief didn't mean what it said, I suggest you read this carefully researched article on Wired.com, which demonstrates that the RIAA's attack on the legality of copying CD's to MP3's is nothing new, and that the "retraction" is merely a public relations gimmick meant to deflect fire from the public outrage engendered by the RIAA's position."
