GUEST,T in Oklahoma (Okiemockbird) private use CD--legal or not?? (25) RE: private use CD--legal or not?? 08 Mar 00

My take (but this is purely private opinion, not legal advice) on this is: since the CD is being made in multiple copies and distributed, your friends would have get permission from, and possibly to pay mechanical royalties to, the copyright holders (not necessarily the same persons as the composers and lyricists.) If they want to reprint the words on sleeve notes, that would require a separate clearance from the mechanical license.
