Illegal to trade burned DVD's?

Postby kingmike74 » Tue Jul 22, 2008 3:07 pm

My buddy offered me the complete Seinfeld series on burned DVD's for trade, is this illegal or is just selling them?

Trade as in permanently? Then yes. If you are borrowing them then no.

Well burning DVDs of copyrighted materials and distributing them is illegal ....
Sharing downloaded (not-paid-for) digital versions of copyrighted materials is illegal...

Yes, it's illegal. It's also stupid to talk about here, because as we all know the cafe forums are tapped by the FBI.
