Re: audacity vs goldwave

Assumedly, the person asking is confusing DRM protected DVDs with CDs.  It isn't illegal to copy music from one cd to another for personal use.  It also isn't illegal to make a cd for personal use of music on your machine for personal use, just as making a tape from a record isn't illegal.  DRM protected DVDS, which is what were said to be illegal to copy are DVDS, not CDS, and their contents is protected from copying by DRM, digital rights management code.  That is the only thing that was said to be illegal.

Although some have claimed otherwise, I can't say with certainty that is the
case here in the United States.  My inclination is to err on the side of
caution for the sake of protecting the list since it requires special
software to remove the DRM and copy commercial DVDs.
