True, but the link seems to be irrelevant as it has nothing to do with 
format shifting but the whether the advert should make clear that the 
equipment should only be used for the purposes of format shifting music 
you own, and not to be used to simply make digital copies of CDs you've 
borrowed from mates or the public library.
