The copyright law as I understand it goes like this-

Lets say you found a comic that you thought was funny and wanted to copy it and give it to someone. So you copy it, that's leagle. Then you give the copy to your friend, that's the illeagle part (though in this case, NO ONE would care!). Now if you were producing multiple coppies of this comic and selling them all over the city, some one might try to do something.

In this case, I'm not sure. If they own the record, they have the right to copy it. But then it could be seen that you're selling these copies.

I guess I'm no copyright expert.
