Apple stops PlayFair, but not for long

The PlayFair project, which removes fair-use restrictions from music purchased through Apple’s [iTunes] online store, has become the latest victim of offshoring. Actually, that’s not quite true: only the hosting provider has moved to India. Not surprisingly, Apple has used the Digital Millenium Copyright Act to ask SourceForge to remove the project. SourceForge declined to use the Safe Harbor provisions of the Act. [...] The new location for PlayFair is at Sarovar, a hosting company for software libre projects based in Trivandrum, India.

ROTFLMSFAO

If it quacks like a duck that’s close enough.  Strictly speaking, the Constitution provides that only “authors and inventors,” not record companies or wealthy third parties, enjoy exclusive rights for a LIMITED time.  Transferring copyright is an oxymoron - a legal fiction bought and paid for by RIAA types.
