: : Question: mp3's, a new way of listening to music on one's computer has become quite popular across many campuses. What is the copyright law on music such as this. Individuals copy songs to their computer from CD and (intentionally or not) end up distributing them to others. What party is the guilty party? the copier? or the person recieving the copy.
: I am writing a paper for school on imesh and its legality and us. If you have any information if at all possible could you email it to me.
The law is too complex for pat answers. Mp3 and Napster are in big trouble.
