Actually, that is illegal too. As is lending the music or unauthorized public performance. ASCAP and BMI are pretty strict about how these rules applythey  even make businesses pay a fee for having a radio in a public place! I agree that distributing the CD's is the same as copying tapes, though. I've been searching CD stores literally all over the world for Jazz Butcher stuff, and I still only have about half of the collection, so CD copies would be a great thing. I even have a CD burner. We should not, however, fool ourselves into thinking any of this is not copyright violation. Heck, every time you photocopy something from a book or magazine, you're breaking the law!
