: from all the info i've seen in this site, i take it as it is not illegal to burn (copy) mp3's if they are to be used for private listening and not to be sold. But Can these mp3's be taken to a neighbors home and and listened to or do they have to be viewed only in the home they were downloaded from? thankyou (by the way "good sit ya have")
Dear Don r,
Without taking professional responsibility, it is my belief that copying of a registered work is infringment. The legal enforcement is the problem to the copyright holder.
I have not researched the point, but I personally believe that downloading to a VCR can be infringment but it just can't be policed.
