Hi, Lou,

I think the difference between the studio and the library is that the 
studio is being paid for doing the copying. What one can legally do at 
home (copying your own music collection for personal use), the minute I 
get paid for doing that, I become the pirate, so I am very careful with 
these things.

I avoid copying tapes that are just copies of off-air music, or even 
original LPs or tapes from a record label. I don't do MP3 copies of 
music collections for clients.

I tell them I don't like wearing an eye patch and I'm afraid the parrot 
would make a mess of my studio.

I do copy tapes when I'm asked by anyone associated with the recording 
or for archives.

There are others who will make MP3 libraries for people from LPs, CDs, 
and tapes.

Cheers,

Richard

The boss took it to an extreme by making people sign even if we were duping their own CDs or tapes, if they were commercial release copies!
