What Is The Audio Home Recording Act?

US Copyright Law

This is an act passed by US Congress that made it legal for consumers to copy records at home for private, non-commercial without fear of committing copyright infringement. This act also imposed a tax on digital audio recorders and digital audiotapes, a portion of which would be paid as royalties to the record industry.
