: Is it legal to make a compilation of songs CD to give away at a 50th high school reunion? I own all of the records that I wish to use. Thanks!
I don't believe it is a crime. It is likely a copyright infringement. It is unlikely that you will be challenged in court, but if you are there is the cost of defending. The damages are very much up to the judge who might be sympathic. You may have legal fees. Do You want to take the chance?
