Halacha - Copying CDs
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Yehonoson Hool
Question: are you allowed to share your music with immediate family ,and what if their married .and are you allowed to get music from someone if you lost the CD but originally bought it including the proplem of dina dmolchusa dina
Answer:
To copy discs and sell them is prohibited according to the Halachah. But as to copying not for sale, in Halachah it is difficult to find a source to justify copyrighting prohibitions. However, the general rule of behaviour, "Do not do to others that which you would not like done to yourself," applies in this, too.
Copying for yourself, then would probably be OK, but not for anyone else, family or not.
All of the above refers to the position of the Halachah alone. The laws of the land, however, prohibit copying discs etc. under virtually all circumstances.
