: I would like to create my own wedding CD of various artists songs as a favor for my wedding reception and have concerns about violating existing copyright laws.
: I would like to proceed in the appropriate manner.
: Can I create my own CD and distribute this CD as a gift? I this legal under CD burning/copywright laws? How can I do this legally? What things do I need to be aware? What steps should I take?
Without taking professional responsibiliity, it is my belief that what you propose would be infringement. As practical matter if done you may not be caught, I caught the cost of going to court maybe the biggest threat. As a non professional infringer, the jusge may be lenient. Ther may be a legal way to do this. Check ASCAP SECAC amd BMI.
