This dude claims it's legal, but I don't know if he knows what he's talking about...

Anyone proficient in this area know if it's legal? I'm thinking about trying it, but only if I can be convinced 100% that it's legal.

even if its not youre not gonna get in any trouble, but i would advise downloading some sort of file sharing software instead

Yeah, but if there's a legal way to get music without buying CD's, I'd much rather do that.

1) download music
2) buy CD-RW
3) burn music to CD RW
4) Rip CD RW to computer with no protection
5)Wipe CD RW
6) Repeat
7) ????
9) PROFIT


Inorder to do step 1 you have to pay for a membership....I think....

Wait a minute, you might have something!

But I'm concerned about step 1...

that's true, depending where you're at, the age of consent might make it illegal.

and I think its too much trouble for free MP3's, I'd rather torrent it.

if it looks to good to be true then it usually is. i think not 100% on this but unless you pay for it doesnt that make it illegal i just cant see how that can be legal someone may beable to tell me or point it out.

It's cheaper than in store, and judging by the fact that you're on here, I'd say it's pretty easily accessible for you.

I'm just saying that there doesn't need to be a CD store near you to buy CDs. And if you were the artist, I think you'd be pissed off if you knew people were illegally downloading your music without paying you.

Okay, I myself use napster. I have to pay a monthly fee of around £10 to download a virtually limitless amount of music. So i'm still paying, it's all legal, but these napster tracks, all I can do is listen to them. I can't burn them, put them on an mp3 player, send them to people, anything like that, which I don't think is fair.

I might try it out, hope it works.

Oh and yes, it's probably illegal. But so it downloading music from limewire and torrents and stuff. At least this way SOME money is getting to the artist!

so by them telling you to remove that wouldn't it then make it illegal to do it so that would make what that site is doing illegal??

Whether you agree with Lars or not, you have to respect that it's HIS music and he has a right to not want people to steal it.

Stuff by smaller bands can be impossible to get with torrents and you can suffer from low seeders.

Napster/rhapsody servers are going to be a lot faster than p2p and will have everything available instantly.

Okay, gather 'round everyone and allow me to share a little secret with you all. Assuming you have Guitar Pro software, free music is only a few short steps away.
Step 1: Go into GP and create a new file of around 250 empty measures.
Step 2: Save the file as something clever-mine is called Pirates Ahoy! and you're about to find out why.
Step 3: Use a website like Project Playlist or YouTube to find the song you would like to have on your computer.
Step 4: In GP use the record to .wav function with your empty file while playing the song on the website of choice.
Step 5: Name your exported .wav file and put it into your music folder.
Step 6: Profit!
This essentially allows you to record and sounds playing on your computer that you want to, including songs. Since this is so similar to recording things from the radio, I will just assume that it's not entirely illegal. Even if it is, there's virtually no way you would be caught anyway. I use this for hard to find songs like Let You Go, Let Me Go by Black Heaven, but I still buy the albums of artists I like because music is their job and they have to make money. Long story short, you can have all the free music you want, but don't forget to throw a little support to the artists as well.

sorry, but this thread is going to result in too many torrent sites and such. TS, if you would like, i would PM either Dirk Gently or cagnius. both of them know a thing or two about law. my opinion is that it would probably be illegal, because DRM is there for a reason.
