Someoone on the apple discussion board posted that it is not illegal to make mix Cd's with multipule artists on them. Does anyone know if this is true?

My understanding is that "mix tapes" are specifically permitted under copyright law. However, if you break DRM in order to create your mix, then you're violating the DMCA.

Yes, I agree, mix tapes/cds are not illegal to make. I also believe that you can give them to someone. You can not sell them, of course.
