    Opinion Wanted

    I have over 2500 CDs save to several external drives.

    I was thinking of burning them and selling them, postage paid, for $5.00 apiece, no jewel case.

    I would pre-state that the purchaser is NOT buying the content, but the blank cd, my time to prepare for shipping,and postage. the buyer is NOT buying the content.

    Basically, the site I'd like to set up would say something like " Buy a blank CD for $1.00, pay $4.00 S/H, and the album of your choice will be recorded on it FREE!"

    The CD cost is less than $1.00, and shipping w/ the cd mailer included, is about $ 1.00.

    Any thoughts?

    you need to get a definition of "copyright".



    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright


    A copyright is a set of exclusive rights granted by a state to the creator of an original work or their assignee for a limited period of time upon disclosure of the work. This includes the right to copy, distribute and adapt the work. In most jurisdictions copyright arises upon fixation and does not need to be registered. Copyright owners have the exclusive statutory right to exercise control over copying and other exploitation of the works for a specific period of time, after which the work is said to enter the public domain. Uses covered under limitations and exceptions to copyright, such as fair use, do not require permission from the copyright owner. All other uses require permission. Copyright owners can license or permanently transfer or assign their exclusive rights to others.

    Yep, you're talking about infringing on someone's intellectual property for your personal profit without paying for the right to do so.

    You'll end up in TROUBLE, BIG TIME.

    Think about it from the artists perspective for one minute. You'll find your answer there....

    If you worked hard on an original musical piece or a book, you'd want to get paid for the effort, wouldn't you?

    Good luck, Brian!
