Eisbecher, a German “‘progressive electronic-trip rock” band are doing their part to preserve and promote the consumer’s right to fair use:

    The band has decided to make a statement for its fans and for music consumers in general and is releasing the album including a bonus DVD with 2 blank CD-Rs which have the same label as the CD itself. Alexx Wesselsky (singer and head of the group): “We are of the opinion that the music buyers are criminalized enough and have been made responsible for the wretched state in the music industry. We are giving them the chance to make 2 legal copies for private use with ‘official blanks’. It can’t always be that the end users have to take the blame for something that international corporations have arranged with their artist-burning methods.” Eisbrecher’s record label ZYX Music supports this action and will deliver the first 5000 albums of the group with 2 blanks each.

    Now there’s an idea. I’d better run out and lend my support by purchasing this record before their label, distributors, and any carrying record store are given the old cease and desist.
