If it is breaking the law, then we do it every Christmas - we put
Christmas cds on the lobby player during December. We also used to put
music on our voicemail system to play when people on the phone were put
on hold, so they knew they were on hold, and not cut off.

Subject: [Videolib] Question about use of CDs

Dear Videofolk,

This question is slightly off-topic but I wondered if anyone has any
experience or knowledge about possible copyright issues in this
particular situation. One of our public libraries sent me this query:

"I was curious if any violations are breached if we play music via cd
player in the library. Are copyright laws broken if music is playing
for the public? "

What would you folks say??
