I have a question about some music file. I've got an N95, that also came with a subscription to Nokia's Come with Music.This is cool cause I got a nice phone and all the music I like.But I was wondering one thing: is there any way I could burn some of that music on a cd or two?Would love make a selection and listen to it on my car as well.Any suggestion on how I could do this?

I'm wasting my energy here...

Marjorie copying bits that suit you, eh? The title is "Copying CDs" that's not the discussion here.

The terms of the Nokia agreement are for a single Nokia device. That's it. End of. Final.

The DRM is there to prevent users breaking that agreement.

Oh and that RIAA page is American.

Woow people, there's no need to start a fight, take it easy.
I didn't know my little problem can cause such a lively discussion..Anyways it's fine by me, after all it says right there that it's ok to make copies only for personal use, that's all I need to hear.
@marjorie05 thanks for the earlier suggestion, I will try to put it to good use.

Take a look at this link click here, especially at the end of the page when it says that it's legal "copy music onto an analog cassette, but not for commercial purposes. It’s also okay to copy music onto special Audio CD-R’s, mini-discs, and digital tapes (because royalties have been paid on them) – but, again, not for commercial purposes." Exactly what I've already said, it's legal as long as you don't share with other people and keep it for your personal use.
And tell me when you have a favorite TV show and you miss it what you'll do? Wouldn't be better if a friend of yours records it for you?

Wrong!

Radio and TV broadcasters pay money and the fact that viewers/listeners may record for delayed PERSONAL playback is taken into the sums agreed with the relevant, in this case music, industry.

You are not allowed to re-record the music such as the OP has obtained... it's still by-passing the DRM.

It's ilegal everything you share with other people, but removing the protection from the songs you bought by rerecording them it's legal. As I've said in my previous post when we used to record a track from a radio, I don't think we did smth ilegal. But all of those are legal as long as we are keeping the files just for ourselves and not sharing with anyone.

Then buy your music under a contract that allows you to play on multiple devices.

The terms of the "Nokia comes with Music" is that it stays on a single Nokia device.

Well yeah but it's not the same thing, if u take the camera into the cinema, u will probably do this to share what u have filmed with someone else , like family for example or something like that. I, and I'm just speaking for myself now, don't need to through all this trouble to share the files I was talking about, I just need them to be usable on the devices I own.

Actually you're not allowed to make recordings of songs either. It's still copyright infringement.

Following that logic I should be able to take a video camera into a cinema.

hi, what I've found interesting is that tunebite thing, it seems that it just rerecords the original files, as I've already told and you can break the law. Also I saw that there are some pretty nice features very interesting

If you so,it's fine by me anyways. But could you give a couple more details about the legal ways I could solve my little problem with the files?
