Throwing away a promo CD = Music Piracy?

Apparently, tossing or selling off a promo CD now equates to “unauthorized distribution, at least if it’s a UMG artist. An EFF lawyer is up up in arms about this, regarding an ongoing copyright case involving promo CDs being sold on Ebay. I’ve been buying promo CDs for years and no one wanted to claim copyright back then? Damn digital age… I honestly don’t see the problem if there is demand for it, but taking this up in arms because he wants to make a little profit for his efforts ? Kind of rediculous, considering this is contested only because he’s selling them online.
