Having a husband and numerous family members involved in the music industry I have been trained quite well to not illegally copy music. Seriously. Even if I didn’t care, the wrath of my uncle Nate would be enough to scare me away from burning cd’s without permission.
“….if you prefer to download or make a free copy of their (the artists) music without permission – that’s stealing. maybe they should come get their next car for free out of your driveway….cool?”
Last week I started using a new preschool program with my daycare kids. I ordered it on-line and it came with a bunch of cool stuff, one thing being a music cd. The kids love it. I noticed on the parent newsletter that they included lyrics and so I thought maybe there was some sort of allowance for me to copy the cd for my families. I had to be sure though.
I have been in contact with a staff member from the program so I e-mailed her and asked if that was allowed. I know sometimes you are allowed to copy things if you are using them within your program so I figured I would give it a shot. Here is the response she gave me:
Our cd’s are coprighted. BUT if you burn them for your families we won’t know. Hint…hint.
So you see, I tried to do the right thing…
