Yes, but capture can be made from discs, legally or not so that isn't an
issue. Its what one does with that copy. Streaming of audio is now an accepted
fact as far as legal license to stream and rights recovery.

I'm not sure I understand the import of this statement, but data compression
of audio reduces data by an order of magnitude. Its not feasible to Stream
full 16/44 audio, nor for most is it feasible to transfer more than a minute or
two via internet.
