When it comes to video & audio compilations (aka "CD-albums" or "DVD-videos") that I bougt and own, I don't care if I have to break the encryption of the disc, either DVD or Audiio - just to copy it to my HD for convenience. I guess this a normal behaviour of the people on the board.

Now comes the intrigue question:

How many of you keep original audio/footage on your HD?

An interesting link to a site that promotes "fair use" is http://www.doom9.org/ that has kept us updated the last ten years.

For myself, I try to keep the whole archive (audio) on-line smile.gif

Could you be more specific. Which policy and who made it? If there are any knowledgeable lawyers reading this, please jump in. As far as I know 'fair use' is what any given judge at any given time says it is. I find that vague enough to mean there is NO fair use.

There is fair use, but not as the idiots crowding the web would like it to be.
