Personal Copying Legal in US Too?

According to “Philip Greenspun’s Weblog”: copying for “noncommercial purposes” is legal in the USA. This is even more open than the Canadian law, which requires that copies be for the personal use of the copier. Essentially, In the USA I can copy a CD and give it to you, but in Canada _you_ must copy the CD.

(Of course, you can still use my computer and my media to make the copy…)

Remember, I Am Not A Lawyer (commonly shortened to IANAL.
