There is in copyright law the fair use material, and other features that
allow people to lend their copies of copyrighted material to others,
barring some other agreement. That's how there are libraries with
books, records, CD's, and videos for you to circulate without paying

I have a small collection of music CDs. I have copied for my own use
some of the tracks off of the albums. Sometimes, I might care to lend
the CD to another, or, lend them my copy of the track to listen to it
when I am not. That is quite legal.
