copying music to iPod to be illegal

On it's way to the House of Commons is copyright legislation that will make everybody a criminal for listening to music that they've purchased on their iPod.

If this passes, your iPod will become fairgame for searches when crossing the border. I bring my iPod on every roadtrip. Imagine how confused a border agent would be when seeing all kinds of downloaded live music and trying to figure out if it is illegal or not?

I had dinner with my bro last Friday and he was pretty pumped up about this issue.

Many new cars have built in hard drives- can you imagine the line-ups at the border if they go through everyone's hard-drives- many people have several- laptops, ipods, on-board computers etc.

The "Big Brother" aspect to this is creepy.

There have been some incidents of laptops being seized/copied at the border that some of the civil liberties groups in the US have picked up on...I think racial profiling may have been used in such cases as well.

ipods - no idea.
