Looks like the RIAA have had a big effect on Creative in recent times, enough for them to remove FM recording capabilities from their lineup of portable music players from here on. What I find funny is that they've released new firmware updates for existing models with FM recording, which simply disables this feature. Yeah, everyone will be rushing to download it I bet.......

XM argued that while users were able to record whatever they pleased, the songs were not transferable and users were not able to move data onto a computer. Despite this important detail, the RIAA pressed forward anyway, indicating that it wanted XM to pay a hefty $150,000 for every song that XM users downloaded.
