Same here now.  Ripping a favorite quote from a movie (eg "It's a
chloroform-deploying portable enticement snare" :-) might be debatable,
but there are only a handful of those.

*I* believe that letting someone else do the work, even from some other
media, is no different from ripping it from cassette yourself.  The RIAA,
I'm sure, would probably say that I mayn't rip it from cassette or CD or
anything else anyway, so it's probably moot.
