  Bootleg recording - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A bootleg recording is a audio or video recording of a performance that was not officially released by the artist or under other legal authority.
Some bootlegs consist of works-in-progress or discarded material distributed against the artist's will; these might be made from master recordings stolen or copied from a recording studio or a record label's offices, or from demo recordings not meant to be shared with a wide audience.
Bootlegs can also be recorded "unofficially" with gear smuggled into a live concert—many artists and most live venues prohibit this form of recording, but modern portable technology has made such bootlegging increasingly easy and has dramatically improved the quality of "audience" recordings.

 Bootleg Recordings and Fair Use: Legal Language Services   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-11)
Instead, the recording would be a violation of § 1101, a 1994 amendment which prohibits the unauthorized fixation or distribution of "the sounds or sounds and images of a live musical performance." Violators of this section are not copyright infringers, because the live musical performances they exploit are technically unfixed and thus not copyrightable.
Even if an authorized recording is made of the same concert, it is only the recording, not the performance itself, which is copyrightable, and the bootleg, as an "independent fixation" under § 114, arguably does not infringe the authorized recording.
The statute therefore provides that violators of §1101 shall be subject to the remedies of the Copyright Act "to the same extent as an infringer of copyright," tacitly recognizing that bootleg concert recordings are not infringements of § 106.
