Not once anywhere have you mentioned that fact. The bar/club DJ's job is simple: Control the energy in the room so as to keep a constant flow of people between the bar and dancefloor.
Anything else and it's nothing more than stroking the ego of the DJ him/herself. Remember that for every self absorbed egotistical DJ, there are dozens of young bedroom dj's who promise they can do the job better and for half the price. The ONLY dj who could possibly survive this situation is the guy who is more concerned he/she is driving up bar sales (and can actually deliver) than he/she is about their own image.

Now you talk about the LEGAL ways to get media. You might want to add TM Century and Promo Only as well. When it comes to current mainstream music and music videos, these are two of the largest sources.
Lastly, for recording a mix/demo, I suggest using a separate computer running some kind of linear audio editing software. This will reduce the load on a single computer, especially if a person uses a lot of layered effects. Most linear audio editing software will allow for recording one entire set as a single file. Then the user can go back through and mark the locations for each track change and flag it. Next, the software should allow for burning the project to a disc. This will burn each individual track at the points flagged by the user with no pause in between so the disc can be track skipped on playback or played as one continuous mix.
With programs like Sony Acid and Adobe Audition, you can also author a master disc that can be sent out for duplication. I would caution anyone who plans on doing this type of stuff to make sure they know what is and isn't allowed according to copyright law. I am speaking from direct experience on this. I once made 200 mix cd's and sold them for $5 each, until I got a visit from a representative of the RIAA. He informed me that I was looking at a fine of $10,000 per song, per disc. I had 18 tracks per disc. Do the math. Needless to say, I destroyed my mix CD's.

Or if you are a working DJ, you can purchase a version of the software that best meets your requirements: http://www.virtualdj.com/products/comparison.html (Home FREE is for non-commercial home use only and cannot be used at gigs where you are being paid.)
NOTE: Please DO NOT ask users to illegally send you their licensed versions of the software, serial number or plugins such as skins, effects, etc. If you do this, your account will be locked. Please support the software and its future development by purchasing your own legitimate license. If you are caught using illegal software and/or music at your gigs then both you and your venue could face prosecution.
