Scott MacLean, a Canadian programmer, couldn't catch a lot of XM's satellite radio broadcasts because they aired early in the morning. So he invented TimeTrax, which records the network's digital broadcasts and sorts them into mp3 files.

When MacLean started selling the software, he drew the ire of XM, which is trying to preserve its alliance and contracts with the music industry. While he says he's trying to make XM more useful, XM and the RIAA are looking for violations.

Both are trying to determine whether MacLean's software breaks any copyright laws or user agreements. An RIAA spokesman admitted the organization hadn't reviewed TimeTrax, but said it remains concerned about broadcast recordings.

simple. if you go ahead and make one cassette tape, it isn't that big of a deal and most importantly isn't easy to spread to others.

mp3s on the other hand are easily spread.

and both are violations of most copyrights. its just that they let the cassette tapes go by b/c its not as much of a widespread problem.

RIAA fears mp3. This means XM will lose money and potential artists in the long run, which is not good for XM users. Perhaps if his program included some type of DRM.

Not a fan of anything I have mentioned, just saying how it probably is.????

Just come up with some sort of play once file. I mean radio is a listen once medium. So if you could record it at all you have improved it. So you have a file and player combo. You play the file once and it never works again. Maybe the player corupts it or just deletes it as it goes.

Sounds good, but yea.... right. I'm sure no one would take advantage of that and alter it.

So close source it.(Closed source has it place) It is an industry we are talking about. The idea is good. There would be a market. Just MP3's are a bad buz word for the industry. So a one time replay is a perfect solution.

Because this method has lossless recording, meaning what you capture is the exact same as what you would buy from a store.

However, since it falls under the catagory of fair use, there's jack shit anyone can do about it.

The RIAA needs to stop trying to stop the progress of audio technology at some point in time, they lost the battle years ago, now they're just bitter and in denial.
