GUEST,Sleepless Dad Copyrights - Will I be sued if (I give away CDs?) (46) Copyrights - Will I be sued if...... 11 Apr 04

I'm thinking about recording a homemade CD with some friends of mine. It's wouldn't be sold - it would be given away to friends. And it wouldn't be intended for broadcast either. Not that I would expect someone to broadcast this effort.

My question is if we could expect to run into any legal difficulties if we included songs written by artists other than "traditional" ? And if we gave away the recording as a gift and never sold it. What can I expect ? All I really want is to document this group of friends I get to perform with.
