I'm wondering what a copyright actually is.
Now I know I'm allowed to make a backup copy from a CD I already own.
But I also have a lot of old LP's in my collection.
Would I be breaking copyright laws, if I would download and burn songs of those records?
I mean, I already own the original song. All I'm doing is getting a digital backup.
Same goes for VHS/DVD movies. I have a few. Suppose I would download them (for whatever reason), would I be breaking any law? I paid for the original, didn't I?
Just wondering, I'm not about to change my way of life here.
