I am a student at university. The cost of tuition is already quite a burden on me, and the cost of materials only adds to that. Copyright laws can make these materials harder to access and more expensive to use, thus increasing the expenses of my education. Education is a basic right that everyone should receive, and increasing the costs only makes it harder for people to receive it. I also love listening to music. I prefer to buy CDs as I like having a physical copy of what I have bought. For copyright law to make it illegal for me to put the music from something that I have legally purchased onto my computers and MP3 players (Because I have purchased the music to listen to and enjoy) is ridiculous and does not make sense.
