Well, as a tape trader myself, I would have to say that as long as the
tapes aren't being SOLD, it's a-ok with me to tape either my djing or my
music. I usually tape my own musical performances, but have never taped my
DJing. I don't think that tape trading has ever hurt a band's album sales,
just look at Phish and the Dead. Anyway, that's my 2=A2 worth.

Peace Out,
