Do you copy every book you check out? It’s illegal it’s dishonest to distribute copyrighted material. Justify it all you want stealing is stealing. People need to have integrity and if you are called out make it right. And really if you are going to steal from musicians don’t broadcast it online.

Friends, when people put their creativity and helpfulness out there (she did in fact take time to design a free download for you all to use ), try to play nice, ok? It just makes the blogosphere a better, happier place :)

I’d say if you have issues with copyright stuff, then forget the cd and hand out just the valentine. Its definitely cool either way. Just stick some of those yummy swedish fish in there. Who wouldn’t want to get those!

Oh, and since we are throwing in our two cents about legal issues…Somebody tell my library that they are breaking the law by lending out cd’s for free for people to burn because you know they are! Just sayin’ :)

I love the cover design, the fact that she provided the play last that her son will be using, & I really love that it’s a project that my child could do with me! Thank you so much Danyelle for taking the time to give us this great download!

p.s. thanks Gabrielle for featuring Miss Dandee! definitely an inspiring post!

Clever and creative as always. I’m sorry your festive fun is being marred by so much negativity. If I didn’t know better, by the course of the comments, I’d have no idea we were talking about an idea for an elementary school child! Good grief. Sharing a song on a mix is a wonderful way to introduce an artist to another. My sisters and I swap mixes monthly and not a grouping has gone by without me then purchasing a handful of albums. If any of the mentioned musicians would actually find enough aggravation to have a problem with their song being included – without a $1.29 fee – on a holiday compilation for a youngster or oldster, I don’t know if I could bring myself to continue calling myself a fan. What has this world come to?

if every single person who listened to a song had to pay for it first, no one would ever make a living in music. and we’d have to ban libraries too.

However, as an attorney, I feel compelled to clarify the rules relating to copyright. I hate to be a stickler and killjoy, but purchasing a song ordinarily only gives you a personal license to use that song for personal use. In the same way the law prohibits you from purchasing a copy of Microsoft Office and making a copy to give away to friends, the law prohibits buying a song and then giving away free copies. And permission from the artists may not be enough because artists generally hand over or share copyright with a record label. There are ways to purchase different licenses for distributing or commercializing a copyrighted work, but those are not the type of licenses ordinarily available on retail download sites like itunes, and they are very expensive. (I don’t necessarily like these rules, but, unless we lobby for different rules, they are the rules.)

This project would work really well, though, with independent artists that own the copyright to their own songs and who want to promote their music. A lot of independent artists forgo using big record labels and post their music for free on their own websites, etc., for anyone to download and distribute. Depending on the crowd at your child’s schools, a mix CD of less-well-known songs might be really cool. It would certainly help independent artists promote their music.

Thanks for sharing this idea!

I love your blog, it is absolutely uplifting and inspiring…and I kinda wish my son was in your son’s class, because I would love to listen to that mix myself. :)

And people, she said “purchase” the music! Let’s not be silly here.

Thinking it takes more of an effort to create, than it does to be critical. Thanks for taking the time to share.
