There is, to be precise, article 6 paragraph 2 subparagraph 2 or the eu
directive, which isnt a "must" but a "may" regulation, states may force
the industry to deliver the necessary tools for privat copies of cds, but
they must not (in contrast to other exeptions where they must).

And there is time pressure, the new law must be ready before the 22th of
december, in two or three weeks, so the german lawmaker has excluded this
"difficult point" from the german WIPO and EU translation (changes to the
Urheber Gesetz).

While there is chrismas with millions of copyprotected CDs unter the tree.

Bom Sharkar!
