Submission + - Using Brain to Remember Songs is Criminal

"The brain is a recording device," explained RIAA president Cary Sherman. "The act of listening is an unauthorized act of copying music to that recording device, and the act of recalling or remembering a song is unauthorized playback."

"In order to avoid engaging in unauthorized copyright infringement, consumers will now be required to immediately forget everything they've just heard — a skill already mastered by U.S. President George Bush."

Couldn't wait until April First I guess."
