: ok, I am still confused! Maybe my question was not clear enough. I am asking if it is against the law to copy a music CD (no computer or VCR involved at all) onto a cassette tape, for my own personal use (no selling or anything). I would assume that if I own the CD there is no problem, but what if the CD was borrowed from a friend or from the library? Are you illustrating a principle with the above answer?
Dear Mr. Keyne,
It is my belief, right or wrong, that what you suggest is an infrinement. The likelihood of you being challenged, if you do not sell what you copy seems small.
