Re: [APD] OT: Music & Media fair use

It's not a question of "fairness" but rather of what specific license one has under copyright law. Yeah, like those are easy to understand . . .  ;-)

Subject: [APD] OT: Music & Media fair use

As most hobbyists have multiple interests and many here share my interests 
in music.. Consider this scenario.

You own an LP or a PreRec Tape of music. You can convert them into MP3 or
similar and listen to it..

Would it be fair use to download the same album (one you own in another media)
from a file sharing network and listen to it... after all you have paid for the 
listening rights.

In my opinion it would be fair as I have already paid the musician and the recording
