Under the new copyright laws your can make copies of your own CD's or tapes for your own purposes. Extract of law below. Most honest people would have bought their set of BOCA series and record from their own CD's for their own field use. I can't see them buying a second set to take into the field. You will always get those that flout the law and make a copy for a friend or three. As a programmer I understand the effects of breach of copyright and am always finding bits of my copyright code in other people programmes without authorisation.

Copying CDs, records and cassettes you own for personal use
Since 11 December 2006, it has been legal to make copies of sound recordings you own for your own personal use, on a device that you own. The copy may, but need not be, in a different format. For example, you copy music from CDs
you own to:
. your computer;
. your portable music player (such as an iPod);
. a blank CD to play in the car;
. a blank CD for a second CD player; and
. a blank CD to keep as a backup.
Copying from a CD
You can copy from a CD if:
. you own the CD;
. it is a non-infringing copy (that is, it was not made illegally);
. you make the copy yourself; and
. you make the copy to play on a device you own.
