No, you can’t copy my CDs.

There, I’ve said it. I’ve tried to avoid the issue, tried to change the subject. I’ve made up too many excuses. But at this point I’m tired of being asked.

I hate to be a curmudgeon, hate to be uncool. I understand you’re broke. (So am I.) I know that I’ll still have my CDs, just as good as they were before, after you copy them.

I read it here.

I do think that things will change eventually, but while it is still against the law, and still stealing, I appreciate this person’s answer.

The same thing goes, in my world, with sheet music. I will not allow students to copy music. That’s called stealing too. Whether you agree with the law or not, I won’t be one to help you break it.

Why is it that some laws are “optional” to so many? I notice California’s cell phone law (hands free in a car) isn’t followed by everyone. And cigarette smokers seem to think “don’t litter” doesn’t apply to cigarette butts.

Yeah, I’m annoying this way.

Other ways too.
