I'm sure they will come up with a way to digitally mark every copy with a serial number, that the removal of or copy of violates the dmca. So if you did download something you already owned, you still must go to jail.
I'm not talking about downloading what you already own - I only do this if I'm too lazy to get up and rip the CD. I've done this with Dream Theater's Train of Thought a lot of times.
I use that example because, had I not began downloading music, my music "collection" would still consist of the one and only CD Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP. If the RIAA had their way with the internet, it'd still be that way.--

Time to rewrite the DMCA.
