Yes, of course. While "fair use" allows you to make copies for YOUR own use, it is illegal to give other people copies while retaining yours. They use a book as a guideline: you can loan a book, but two people can't read the same book simultaneously.
Why do you think they shut Napster down, even though no files even resided on their servers?
