Thread Name: Bruce Murdoch podcast
Subject: RE: Bruce Murdoch podcast

I don't know the laws in the U.S., but in Canada you can legally record something off the radio (or a podcast) and copy it onto CD for your own personal use. You can legally copy CDs for your own personal use. No problem about that. You can get into hot water when going beyond personal use.

Don't get me wrong. I want everybody to hear the podcast. That's why I posted the link in the first place. But there are legal questions, and to my mind, ethical questions. Seeing Bruce's response to my raising the issue, I think he agrees.

And BTW, I myself have burned the podcast onto a CD for my own personal use and have played it four or five times already.
