Well, doesn't American law have it legal to make a copy "for private  
use"? But the restaurants etc are mainly billed for using the music,  
not only the actual copy of the recording of the music. Those are two  
different rights, normally owned by composer/publisher and record  
label. I like that these matters come up on the list, lots of  
interesting posts so far :-)
