Copyright Notes

Copyright law exists to protect the work of creators so that they may benefit from their labor. Fair use allows the owner of a copyrighted work to make a copy for himself as a safeguarding backup. Common sense dictates the ownership of said copy remains with the owner of the original recording. See section 108 of the U.S. Copyright Act. As a warning, also read chapter 11.

In the spirit of this law, I won't make CDRs of commercially available recordings currently available; I will not make more than one copy of the CDR; I will delete the files from my hard drive.


Burn - to create a CDR.
Britney - wears red vinyl in Oops
CDR - recordable CD. you can use regular data CDRs on your regular CDR burner to create music CDs.
MP3 - (Mpeg Layer 3) audio material in a standardized, compressed format. Depending upon the amount of compression, the quality of the audio may appear identical to the uncompressed original.
