Copying CDs Could Be Made Legal

BBC News:

"Copying music from a CD to a home computer could be made legal under new proposals from the UK government."

I'd actually long-since forgotten that this is technically illegal!  Surely it's one of those silly archaic laws that nobody really expects to be enforced, much like the way it's still technically legal to shoot a Scotsman with a bow and arrow within the City of York walls after dark?

This is 2008 - does anybody really believe that people still carry dozens of CDs around with them instead of ripping them to an MP3 player? iPod sales would suggest not.
