We have students and faculty who want to convert cds onto their MP3 players. Is it legal to purchase a cd (musical or otherwise) and convert it to an MP3 player? Our stance has always been that there is no unauthorized duplication and this is clearly another copy albeit not a physical copy.

Thanks!

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
