Halacha - Copying CDs
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Yehonoson Hool
Question:
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.
