Re: [ARSCLIST] Protecting LPs thru the mail

Hi Folks,

Section 108 is the "fair usey" section of US Copyright Law that applies to creation of copies (including phonorecords which refers to any type of fixed sound recording) by libraries and archives. Under certain conditions, qualifying libraries and archives can reproduce and distribute a very limited number of copies. Working with your organization's legal counsel is advised, because your insitution, or the recording at issue, may not qualify for these exemptions from copyright infringement.

See: http://www.copyright.gov/title17/92chap1.html#108.

A consumer making a copy of a music recording for their own personal use is explicitly allowed under a provision of the copyright act but it is not "fair use."
