What's important about this is that it's being offered through Amazon.  

As a seller on Amazon, I'm aware of how tightly run a ship it is from a
legal standpoint.  

The implication is that what some of us have been doing has made it past
their legal team- if a customer owns it, even if it's just been purchased
and still on the seller's premises, that it is legal to make a copy of what
is now his recording for him.

It's nothing new.For a number of years now,labels or artists themselves had
been including free download codes inside of vinyl records. Roger > Date:
