In the US, the legality of creating MP3s or other formats from CDs that you own is still under question. Just because the RIAA says it is illegal doesn't make it so. If Bush owns the Beatles CDs and made a personal copy to put on his personal iPod, he hasn't broken the law.
Now, if he got a subordinate to do this for him, and likely he did, then he probably did violate copyright law.
Of all the many laws that Bush has allegedly broken (like privacy laws), lets not get all up in arms about this one.

There is of course a large chunk of irony/satire in any news rapport or blog post you can find on this story, and I deliberately went with a source that took it far beyond any risk of misunderstandings in this area. I'm also aware that the legality of making mp3s are still under question in the US. However, being on the other side of the pond where RIAA holds meetings with European governements and the EU itself, sometimes with the aid of American diplomatic channels and personel, does make the RIAA standpoints as close to official American foreign policy as you can get, and hence from the viewpoint over here it might just as well be the law and the story makes a valid point in showing how absurd RIAAs actions and interpretations of that law are.

It's not really a mocking of Bush (though with election year polarisation over on your side I can understand the reflex to believe soo), more like a mocking of the RIAA inability to accept 21:th century technology and its everyday use for average people by showing that not even the most powerful man in the world, surrounded by dozens of lawyers to give him daily advice, can live in accordance to what they want the law to be. :-)

They got Capone for tax evasion, didn't they?

Taking music from CD's is a crime?
