Doesn't say when though, unless I missed it?
No signature worth mentioning...
No, it doesn't - but I know the WHF crew are on the case re a news story on it, so i'm sure they'll get further info....
Interesting...so it will allow people to copy 'digital content they have bought onto any medium or device', but what about copying LPs and (to a lesser extent) tapes? Does 'digital content' even include CDs, DVDs and BDs, or are they only talking about downloads Why is it politicians and lawyers can't just come out with exactly what they mean in easy terms without leaving anything ambiguous...a simple statement saying you can copy anything you own an original copy of for personal use only would have been straightforward and inclusive.
Main system: Mac Mini 2011 • HRT II+ DAC • Marantz CD 63 mkII KI & PM66 KI • MS 10i speakers [borrowed]
In storage: Thorens TD160 (no cart) • Cyrus 2 & PSX • Cyrus tuner • Technics SL-P777 • Nakamichi DR-1
It's a catch-all, covering "copyright works such as computer games, paintings, photographs, films, books, and music"
Yes you're right; they're talking about digital content. Not clear about DVD & blu ray rips.
Great news though!

I hope they cover physical media as well, as this seems to suggest otherwise:
"Private copying - to permit people to copy digital content they have bought onto any medium or device that they own, but strictly for their own personal use such as transferring their music collection or eBooks to their tablet, phone or to a private cloud;"
