    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.
