In the US, it's illegal. Other countries vary. i.e. in Canada, it's legal to download, but not to upload.

http://www.webopedia.com/DidYouKnow/Internet/2004/music_downloading.asp

Russia currently has an interesting loophole that allows services like www.allofmp3.com to legally sell music for crazy rates like US$.02 per MB of the filesize. (You chose how you want your songs encoded ... want a full quality WAV? No problem, but you're paying for a 30MB download vs. a 4MB MP3 download. Regardless, at pennies a MB, it's still a crazy deal). Not necessarily ethical, but does appear to be legal.

I forget about the worldliness of our users here. My comments are merely for the U.S. as I don't pretend to know legal issues in other countries as it's hard enough just tracking those in the U.S.

Yes P2p is illegal only if the said file is copyrighted
that being said if your looking up smaller bands whose music is not copyrighted then its open to anybody

If you had a bunch of LP's ( Look it up younger members ) and you transfered the tracks to CD this is legal in the UK.

However, if you downloaded the self same tracks and put them on CD is this illegal ?

The whole P2P thing is a legal nightmare Evil or Very Mad

In the US, if you haven't paid for the songs and just download them, it's illegal. Though I think it's technically illegal to download the songs even if you have them on LP or CD somewhere. It's not that much of a nightmare.

Of course, this doesn't pertain to songs in the common domain or under other such GPL-ish licenses.

I have about 2130 songs. 4 from the ITMS. The rest are straight off CD's. (That's what I did the first week I had the mini).

1048 songs Very Happy
About half way through my CD collection. Then I have to figure out how to get my LPs (200 +) into my iTunes.

I Love my AIRTUNES! Very Happy

Cheers
Brian
