    Digital vs. Analog, apparently.

    Clever, but I wouldn't necessarily call it "sharing music" in the sense I normally think of the term - more like a community radio station. I gather any student downloading/recording music from this system to keep would still be in violation.

    I don't see how this could possibly fly. If I take a DVD, copy it to VHS, and distribute the copy, I'm breaking the law, even though the copy is not on a digital medium, right?

    I've got a TV capture card on my computer, so if my university had this, I could create copies of the music, obviously not as good as CD quality, but it still wouldn't be that bad.
