Need A Good Legal Downloading Site

  1. It might be that way in the Land Down Under (which I highly doubt) but it isn't that way in the US.

    Basically, you're saying that I can go to the store, buy a book and since I now own that copy of the book I can take it to a copy center, make 100 copies and give them to all my friends.

    You might want to ask the copyright owner if he/she agrees with you.

    FWIW, I am the owner of several copyrights, and it is never okay with me if you copy my stuff without permission.
  2. Two wrongs do not make a right.
  3. One can never go wrong doing right.:)
  4. Preacher:,, and (just to name a few) have pay per download, so you do not have to pay a monthly fee. These are all legal download sites.

    Also try
  5. Like i said earlier in this thread im not going to argue about it anymore...

  6. also, just so you know, most of those "pay per month" sites are illegal as well. :)
  7. I ran and operated a online radio staion called Triple 7, we played good Christians songs. When i ran this station i paid for a Lisence to do it legal. i could play any song as long as it followed the International laws.

    However, this is legal, when you watch a Video of a taped show, you are in your rights to do so. IE:a movie is on at 7pm, your going to be out at that time so you tape the movie on your vcr. The watch it later, its a copy of that movie but l egal to do as long as you don't sell it and make money from its sales.

    The same with songs, you can record the song you want and play it when you are ready to hear it, as long as you do not sell it for money.

    Also International Laws state that if under 10% is used from one cd, book or images its not ellegal, if over 10% is used it is ellegal to use and have without the permission of the owner.
  8. That is not the case in the US my friend. It is important to remember that the laws do vary from country to country. Downloading music in the US even for personal listening on an MP3 player or other device is subject to 3 years in prison and a $250,000.00 fine in the United States.

    There have been over 1,000 students arrested or fined from KU (Kansas University) by the RIAA for downloading music, and I personally know of a young lady in Junior High not far from my house who was arrested and fined over 150,000.00 for downloading music from these supposed "legal" download sites. They lost in court and this devistated their family. And no she was not selling or giving the music to anyone, it was all on her iPod for her personal listening pleasure.

    My advice,....go buy the CD. :)
