    I couldn't list all of mine. I have way too many.

    Same here - even to list the various bands and soloists, without the individual recordings (on lp, tape & cd) would take up far too much space. For example there are about 60 featuring the ISB, 30 with the NYSB, 50 by Black Dyke, BAYV - 12; YBS - 15 etc.

    Needless to say, many, and particularly some of the earlier issues, have been snapped up on ebay or from other second-hand sources.

    Peter, have you archived any of this vast collection to either PC or an iPod? You ought to consider doing this in the event of damage etc.

    agreed...As soon as my cds come in the mail, I rip them to computer,load them on my Ipod and put the CD in storage. I want to keep them in mint condition.

    If you treasure your collection then you are right to do this Ryan. Riping to PC is now even easier as I have seen several USB type turntables on the market for around the £100 mark. These also come with appropriate software that makes even archiving vinyl straightforward.

    And, still in the absence of a fair use policy in the UK, technically illegal :rolleyes: :hammer

    Hmmm... I thought some legislation was recently passed Keith that now permitted people to do this ? I mean literally within the last weeks?

    Is that not the case?

    EDIT: I see it is still technically illegal but according to this article the BPI (body who police copyright theft on behalf of record labels) won't prosecute people who place their music onto MP3 players etc.

    Dunno - possibly - I've had my head in the sand for a couple of months.

    Edit: I know there were changes on the cards, but not when they were going to be passed....

    Er, only if John's correct and legislation has changed. In the absence of a fair use policy it is illegal to transfer the audio onto any other medium from which it was supplied - it's not something I agree with, but unfortunately true.

    I was wrong Becki - it is illegal... see my post above. You cannot legally do this with your own music, but the body who policies this have stated publicly that they won't prosecute anyone who does do this.

    How is it illegal by making back up copies of the cds you own? I dont get that...

    Things may be different Down Under (it is in the States), but in the UK there is no such thing as a "Fair Use" policy when relating to copyright. In essence what this means is that technically you're supposed to buy a different copy for every medium you store it on - when you buy a CD, you're really only buying a licence to listen to it and you need to buy similar licences to put it on an iPod or hard drive on a PC.

    ouch...they like to rip you guys off over there dont they? over here in NA, you only have to buy a CD/DVD once...and you can burn it to a blank cd or to your Ipod for your personal use.

    - wasn't there a recent change in Canadian law that puts part of the copyright costs into the price of blank media to cover personal copying?
