I recently recieved a swank new work laptop (Dell Inspiron 8600) to replace my also swank old work laptop (IBM ThinkPad A30p). On my old laptop, there was a bunch of music for when I was traveling, or what have you. |
In an effort to comply with the policies I helped put in effect, now I'm trying to ensure that there is nothing but legal music on my laptop. So I was careful to only copy over the stuff from my iTunes Music folder, the copies of all my CD's that I've ripped and stuff I've purchased/won on the Music Store.
However, there is one track on there that doesn't fit in either category. It's a Paul Oakenfold "Essential Mix", specifically the one from the Rojam in Shanghai China (possibly Oakie's best - wonderful track). Now, since this was originally broadcast on the BBC.. and never was put on a CD or any other copyrighted material, does it still adhere to the laws that the RIAA is so vehemently enforcing?
My Gut feeling is no, and even if it did - it's outside the scope of the RIAA. I know this kind of thing has been challenged before, live recordings, and it has been upheld that it's up to the artist to enforce.
Anyone else have any views?
