...when it comes to downloading music?

I was always under the assumption that if you download copyrighted material, it's NOT illegal, but to send it on to others, is.

So if you download a bunch, you're not breaking the law, but if you share it with others for THEM to download, then you're breaking the law.

I always thought it was illegal if you sold it on your own CDs and stuff.

In Sweden both things are illegal but they only catch the people who share a lot of music and films

It depends on the country, actually. I think in some places, it's legal to download, but not to upload, as you're distributing it free of charge.

If you think about it, on copyrighted media, it always says that it's forbidden to DISTRIBUTE it without permission, but it doesn't say it's forbidden to ACCEPT it for free.

It's kinda like weed. There are different regulations for growing, selling and smoking it. It differs between countries.

In the US I'm pretty sure it's OK to leech/download but illegal to seed/share.

downloading copyrighted materials is allowed.
using them to make profit is illegal.
Uploading these material is illegal.
Most p2p downloading is almost impossible (or very slow) without uploading.

Pretty sure sharing and downloading are both illegal, but the first time you get caught the FCC just gives you a stern warning. All my friends that got caught said they didnt press charges the first time
