    That sounds like it goes a bit too far. If one person buys a CD this bill so unds like it would make it legal to give away or sell digital copies of it.

    Actually, it seems to ensure that if a person buys a CD, they can sell or give away one digital copy to one person if they destroy their own copy:

    I think that part of the bill is about preserving First Sale rights (e.g., you can resell or give away the song that you purchased online, if you are transferring your copy.)
