Best CD Data Base? Manual tag download/insert? Tag software check copies?/'piracy'?

Hi,

  1. Which is the best CD data base? Based on this thread (http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=147496&highlight=cddb) it seems to be either CDDB or FreeDB. Any other opinions?

  2. I like to rip offline. Is there a way to manually download the tags manually and call the burning software e.g. Nero to check from the offline file?

  3. Lastly, like to ask if the tagging software also help check for burnt CD’s (exact audio copies without gap). Also, can the CD’s be detected as ‘pirated’ (I thought unlikely since all the CD’s I have burnt were not protected, except the C (copyright sign)) and stop the tagging/signal to the recording companies the ‘piracy’ etc?

Thanks in advance.
