Specifically, the demand is for the ability of some of their cars to record CDs on their hard drives.

As we can read in TorrentFreak, the Association of Artists and Recording Companies (AARC in its acronym in English) has sued the two automotive multinationals for a still unknown amount in royalties for their affiliates. This fact would be supported by the “Audio Home Recording Act” of 1992, a law that required importers and creators of digital audio recording devices to pay a royalty as compensation for copying.
