- Also, the copyright laws allow a person to make a copy of the recording for safekeeping (or archiving). Frequently you see that on copyrighted software. Some companies even tell you to make a copy for safekeeping, in case your original copy gets damaged.
- What we do, is we make a copy from the original medium to CD, and return BOTH recordings to the client. If we also perform a sound restoration, we charge a few extra $ to cover our labor and equipment costs (kind’of like a restoration artist that restores a painting, or an old silent movie).
