: I am having a dispute with my grand dad and was wondering whether you could clear it up.
: My grand dad believes that if he was caught using a copied cd whilst playing publicly, he would be prosecuted. I believe that if he owns the originals, he could do it legally.
: This is assuming that he has a license to play the music publicly.
Dear Dale Stevens,
Without taking professional responsibility, it is my belief that many infringments go unquestioned. I believe that making a photocopy of a copyrighted document is an infringement. I have not heard of the case where a photocopy has bee challenged.
