So this is where I ask whether one has to have the exact copy intended, or is it alright to own a remaster, for instance, and have a digital copy of the same record but different version (not LP, though). Count that the track listing is the same (I know there are cases in which it wouldn't be fair to own a reissue with more tracks). Or should one have the exact same original sounding record in hands?
An example: In the UK it is even illegal to rip a CD, so downloading something that is exactly the same as the CD is as well. Meanwhile, in the Netherlands, ripping or copying a borrowed CD is perfectly legal.
Downloading a different remaster (which will have additional copyright from the people who were involved in remastering) will be illegal in most countries.
