UNKLE Paying Lip Service?

UNKLE - Psycho Pab's Def Mix
UNKLE - Psycho Pab's Def Mix

I received a free copy of this mix cd when I saw UNKLE live at the Mezzanine in San Francisco. I was happy to see them embracing a more open stance on music and copyright until I read the conflicting fine print:

The copyright in this sound recording is owned by Surrender All. Made in the UK. All rights of the producer and owner of this recorded work reserved. Unauthorised copying, public performance, broadcasting, hiring or rental is prohibited.

So based on this I can’t legally rip it or burn it (unauthorised copying), and I can’t share it (public performance, broadcasting). What gives?
