Me-To-Me copyfight

Interesting read about the latest push to tighten copyright in digital age. LawGeek blog has a great article about so called INDUCE drafts.
The author mentioned "Me2Me" apps.
It's a strong opinion:

Me2Me technology, however, would be much much harder to outlaw. Many Me2Me uses would arguably be fair or non-infringing uses. For instance, they tend to be private uses involving only family or friends. Many would involve use of media legitimately purchased by both the sender and recipient of the content (i.e. oneself). Thus, under current copyright law, it would very difficult to outlaw any of them. It would also be difficult to chastize them politically in front of Congress.
