    Meaning in your lifetime have you EVER made a copy of a music cd and given it to a friend/co-worker/family member etc. or made someone a copy of a homemade party mix of music from audio cd's and listened to it?...

    Along the same line of thought, have you been given a copy of ANY music cd/mix cd from friends/co-workers/family etc and listened to it?

    Be honest.

    If you've done it even once, you must vote "yes".

    Yes, I've made compilations to give to friends, usually along the lines of "Listen to this - you'll love the rest of their albums too."

    I've also had copies given to me to listen to. If it was something I liked, I've usually purchased it. If I didn't like it, I'd either give it back or toss it.

    I have given and received compilations. Mostly for evaluation type scenarios. I have an Ozzy cd a buddy made for me that I am going through so I can decide what I want to buy.

    Received one copy only. Liked the artist so much I've bought all the cd's she's done. Never given away a copy. Don't make them.

    So, first one that comes to mind is the CD we made of my sister's senior recital. I also produced a CD for a good friend (he was also the performer in this case).

    My sister also had some out of print CD's stolen that I also have a copy of, so we replaced the missing discs.

    When I went away to school I also received tape versions of some favorite LP's in the family collection.

    I've never given away mix CD's (or plain copies) or tapes that I can remember. Not received any beyond those mentioned, either.

    But I have to say "yes" according to the rules.

    Accepted... sis-in-law's then-bf made a bunch of CD copies for all of us as Christmas presents one year... said he wanted to expand our musical horizons or something. So anyway, I thought lecturing him on intellectual property over a Christmas gift was a little tacky :)

    Made copies and accepted copies and still, I sleep well each night.

    Nope. I didn't even own a CD burner until about 2 years ago and most of the people I hang with weren't into music as much as I was/am.

    At one time I was heavy into making my own mix tapes from vinyl, so much so that I had a cassette recorder with dbx noise reduction built-in. (dbx was much better than Dolby.) I don't recall every giving away (or selling) any of the tapes, either.

    How many people have NOT because they lack the means to (no computer, no burner, no friends)?

    Of course. Many times. Does that make it right? No.

    I might even do it again because I am evil incarnate.

    But I've made lots of them for the garage. And they are still there.

    Back in the day, we used to make tape (reel to reel & casette) copies of LP's all the time. And you were smart to tape albums as it saved wear on the records. Hell the radio stations had "Sunday Album Nite" when they would play whole album sides w/o ads so you could easily tape them. A good reel to reel deck sounded as good as a record.

    22 of us lawbreakers and counting....:)

    Yes. But don't count me as a lawbreaker -- it's legal. ;)

    Have a few mixed CDs lying about. From pre-MP3 player days when you wanted to bring music to the cottage, but didn't want to bring 100 CDs.

    Never made a cd for anyone.
    Received a grand total of two copied CD's (one was from a wedding and is quite a cliche tacky sappy mix of songs I would NEVER purchase or listen to :) )

    As for tapes... well in my youth let's just say the movie "High Fidelity" rang quite true for me... :)

    Received a copy of a CD from the brother-in-law (for my daughter). Actually my wife received it, but I counted it anyway.

    After the long discussion on copyrights, respect for the artists, etc. they don't bother doing us the "favor" of burning us a copy of their CDs anymore. :)

    Yes. Made copies of jazz CDs for Dad. Don't feel bad, spent $15 - $20 on the originals.
