Charity shops attempt to destroy music industry

Captain PugwashThanks to the idiocies of UK copyright law, anyone who copies their CDs to their PCs or iPods is already a criminal. But to then give those CDs to charity shops is, to mix various content industry metaphors, just like stealing a CD from a record store / taking the shirts from artists' backs / sending the Boston Strangler on a visit to a woman home alone. How can Scope sleep at night?!

The charity Scope said today that its 300 stores were being inundated with donated CDs, as more and more people trim their collections - or even get rid of them altogether to free up space.
