Australian IT - iPods prompt copyright rethink (Paul Osborne, MAY 06, 2005):
Attorney-General Philip Ruddock yesterday released an issues paper to spark a debate on what changes should be made. ...
'Many Australians believe, quite reasonably, that they should be able to record a television program or format-shift music from their own CD to an iPod or MP3 player without infringing copyright law,' Mr Ruddock said.
I love the words 'quite reasonably' in there :) Sounds like he's not opposed to the idea.
