Rapidly getting out of date
Much of this article seems anachronistic, and sometimes even trying to push certain topics.
"The CD-R disc is currently the most common medium for homemade mixes" - really? Still? Most computers are sold without optical drives these days. Surely the USB stick is more dominant now.
I'm also suspicious of the entire "ctape" section. There's no wiki article for it and Googling for that term doesn't turn up anything about mixtapes.
- I am also suspicious of the "ctape" section; the grammar and syntax was off, and Google couldn't provide any information about what a ctape even is. Should this section possibly be removed? BandW2011 (talk) 21:55, 20 March 2016 (UTC)

The statement in the article, that copyright owners have no recourse if infringing material is given away without profit, is simply not true (at least, not in the United States). Under US copyright law, the copyright owner can argue that their financial interests have been diminished by the very existence of the unauthorized copies. The law also recognizes that the infringer can receive non-financial benefit simply by using the material to advertise himself. Thus, copyright owners most certainly can take legal action against the infringer, and that action can result in the payment of damages to the copyright owner. The statement needs to be removed.

- The statement in the article is definitely untrue. I'm removing it. Wendy Day and Deborah Mannis-Gardner discuss the issue in the following video for a couple of minutes : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GtC6z7dRjE&t=4m33s . Wirty Inc. (talk) 21:30, 4 March 2017 (UTC)
