    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.

    I've heard it said that the RIAA claimed at some point that upgrading from LP/etc to mp3s was illegal, but I don't know if that's true or not.

    All of that is agaist the current ghestpo Law. We need to rise up and challenge it now. We should re-write it to say once we buy it, it is ours....And we can do with it what we want period!!!

    In the UK you are not allowed to make a copy of something you already own. Even if it is for personal use / backup.
