Well, this was for one of the truly good guys in this world. A co-worker that no one could ever be able to say a bad word about. He pushed it some, but I didn't have a problem doing it for free. Consider it my wedding gift to him and his bride.

I couldn't believe it! I'm lifelong friends with the parents of the bride so I didn't say anything (actually, the swift kick in the shin from my wife when I whispered to her that the CD idea was illegit probably swayed me not to say anything).

Has anyone else seen this happening in your area?
All the time.

My sister and her husband made the cds themselfs, buring them one at a time on home computers, for their wedding nothing fancy just a cd with a basic label and they left them in a basket for so only the people that wanted them took them.

it really isnt a new thing at all.

you guys act like burning CDs is a new thing.

Itunes=$.99/song 10 songs=$10
CD burner=$25
CD printer=$99 (epson photo r200)
inkjet CD=$.25/disk (give or take) 200guests=$50


grand total
$184

not a whole lot of money compaired to what they payed you or the photographer...right?

Sure, it's cheap as long as you don't mind providing illegal copies of music to a large group of people....

the thought of it being illegal is the last thing on the mind of the average person.

I have yet to hear of the FBI breaking up a wedding due to illegal music distribution.

I'm sure most of the people on this board have used a song in a video at some point that they didnt have the rights to.
