music recognition technology

Another round of legal battles emerges in the world of YouTube. A blog [->] reports that the RIAA is basing lawsuits on a music recognition technology. I imagine this would be fairly easy to do using “psycho acoustic” vectors or something like that.
First the law tells us we may not make duplicates of an item in our rightful possession. Then the law tells us that we may but only if the work in question is from the previous century. Now we are told that we may not even create our own media if copyrighted works are being played anywhere within range of the recording.
