Is TimeTrax legal

Use Time Trax and Cheetah to record sat. Radio in 100% pure Digital Is this a legal way to fill up your hard drive with music? You have to pay a monthly subscription for satellite radio so does that cover the royalities. Does anyone have experience with this and how is the quality?

Visit a lawyer in your country and ask.

It's the only way you'll know.

Does it matter

I would guess that it would be as legal as a cassette recorder off a regular radio. Besides how can they catch you. If you still buy cd's I think this is a good way to try out new music. Besides I had a lot of 8 tracks at one time and the rights to them songs I still have if I read the rulls correct. It's all in the game.

In the US, personal use is a non issue.

It's the file sharing and such that has most in an uproar.

-> Your original question is still one for a lawyer in your country. And even then you won't know until you're in court.

Workaround? Just stay low and don't share.
