It all seems innocent enough. The Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills introduces a new section (“Section 28B”) into the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 (“CDPA 1988”), which creates an exception to copyright based on personal private use. From now on, said the Government, any person who legitimately acquires content (music, film, books) can copy that content for his or her own private use without infringing copyright. It can be copied onto other formats or stored in the cloud provided it is for private, non-commercial use. It can be reproduced without even the theoretical risk of that person being pursued as an infringer of copyright. Where’s the harm in that?
