    and now you're teaching us copyright infringement? oh my…

  2. Qieth says:

    It is not illegal to make a copy of a CD you have bought, and is using for yourself. Like, if i just bought the latest Britney Spears and burn it to have a copy in my house, my car, my cottage and at the office. Thats perfectly legal, as long as i keep it to myself.

    I don't know if it's illegal were you live but how do you think they are going to know if you make a copy. I don't think the police will stop your car just to check for pirated CD:s.
