    :confused:

    ok,
    we've all done it, doing it or thinking about it.

    Now, just to start up some discussion.

    A friend of Dad's, rang me with a problem. Short story long...

    He has an MP3 player/recorder.

    So The question is after paying much $$$'s for it. What do you legallay use it for ??

    If you have like me vinal/CD. you can't legally, copy it onto MP3.
    If you want to download from the Web, sites such as Napster/Kazaa, are either illegal, or being closed down.

    So "where" do you get mp3's LEGALLY, to use ?

    I know it's being done. But why sell these things if you can't copy music to use on them.

    Kinda like being able to buy a knife, but get done for it being an offensive weopen, if you got one on ya person ??

    So ideas and possibly open discussion. UK /US law differs so pls try to keep to UK law if poss.

    cheers gangsters !

    Jaye

    To my understanding as long as you have the CD it's ok, but don't take my word on it. :)

    Copying(ripping) your personally owned music collection to MP3 is completely legal. I built a rig for my Uncle specifically for the purpose of him ripping his vinyl to CD/MP3 format.
