COMMON SENSE FROM FORMER CONGRESSMAN ALLAN SWIFT
Testifying as a private citizen making mix tapes for over 50 years. "When I buy a CD or a DVD, that content should be wholly mine to do with as I please as long as I am in no way selling its contents or profiting from it. ... Present law is predicated on the assumption that consumers will rip-off copyright holders. The vast majority are innocent of that assumption, but all are treated as guilty."
