Is it allowed to copy a CD with yewish music (for example Yaakov Shwekey or Meidad Tasa)?June 21, 2012 8:31 pm at 8:31 pm #880797apushatayidParticipant
I don’t think Yews are obligated to follow halacha. Neither are Ewes.June 21, 2012 11:39 pm at 11:39 pm #880798WolfishMusingsParticipant

No, no… you got it wrong. He’s not asking if the Yews are allowed to copy music, he’s asking if *he* can copy CDs with Yewish music on them.
Personally, I’ve never known trees to produce CDs. Personally, I believe that the examples the OP provided (Yaakov Shwekey or Meidad Tasa) are much more mobile and musically talented than Yews. Most of the Yews that I’ve seen stand still and are rather silent.

NO you may not copy any type of cd (exceptions may apply pleae speak to your rav)because it is like stealing. how? well if you didnt copy the cd you would probably have gone to the store to buy it, no? and then the maker of the cd would have earned some money! by copying it you are stealing that money from the maker of the cd!June 22, 2012 6:51 am at 6:51 am #880800Midwood YidParticipant
It depends on why you are copying it. If you own the CD and you are making a copy for backup purposes, to listen in the car, at work etc that should be OK. If you are making a copy to give to a friend or copy a friends CD’s or make a copy for an older child who is in the dorm or no longer living at home then that would not be allowed.June 22, 2012 3:33 pm at 3:33 pm #880801June 22, 2012 4:09 pm at 4:09 pm #880802YW Moderator-42Moderator

There’s nothing to ask anybody about here. It’s a simple case of United States copyright law. You are permitted an “archival backup” of your CD, which can be used at a later time if your original is damaged. Unless the CD is in the public domain, you MAY NOT copy it to give to someone else. That is theft and violation of copyright law.June 22, 2012 5:35 pm at 5:35 pm #880806LemonySnicketParticipant

Some Hispanics can’t pronounce Jew. I once had an Hispanic man ask me “you a Yew?” maybe the op is a spaniardJune 22, 2012 7:25 pm at 7:25 pm #880808zaidy78Participant
More realistic questions on the topic??
If you bought a cd and lost it can you copy from a friend?
If you bought a cassette years ago, can you copy a friends CD?
If you bought a CD for yourself, can you copy it and take it to work (ie Uncle Moishy and you are a teacher, can you copy it for your classroom)?
Can you make a slideshow with the music? For yourself, or for your Yeshiva Dinner Video?June 22, 2012 9:40 pm at 9:40 pm #880809oomisParticipant
So cemetery bushes are now making music?June 23, 2012 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #880810Shopping613 🌠Participant
Look zaidy28 i only say the hard facts that everyone goes by or should, your questions depends on what your rav lets and dosent let. For me personally most of you’re answers are yes, but it may be different for you. I am not a rav and cannot answer you’re questions on your level. Please ask your rav!June 25, 2012 10:15 pm at 10:15 pm #880811Doodle-Man™Member
It depends if these trees are jewish or not.
