Copying CDs (For The Right Reasons) To Become Legal in the UK

At last, some sense prevails.

For copyright materials that don't have any copy protection, it will become legal to copy those materials for personal use on other formats (e.g. ripping a CD to MP3 to allow play on a different device).  However, copying for someone else's use will remain illegal.  In effect from 1st June 2014

This, at last, makes some sense, except it would still be useful to be able to legally make a back up copy of DRM protected content of course.
