: : I wanted to make a backup copy of all my CDs because I've spent so much on replacing scratched ones.. So I figured it's cheaper to replace copies (if i scratch one just make another copy of my original) than it is to replace originals... Anyway, is it illiegal to do that? I have no intentions of selling or distributing these copies, its simply to save myself money on scrathced CDs.
I don't believe that it is legal. I don't think it is a crime. I also believe that you can't be found unless you try to sell the copies. It may be like downloading from a TV to a VCR.
