Downloading songs from music sites for free can sound as though you doing legal downloads, but sometimes it is just not that way. When you find music online “free” to download it does not mean that it is entirely legal. The music found on most sites is violating copyrights laws, and downloading this music is violating those laws. When you come across a great track that you just MUST have, and there is an option to listen to it, rather do so. That will not hurt. Find the singers and artist you like and listen to their music, and if you would like to download it, before doing so, have a look at the RIAA site and find the information you are looking for concerning obtaining this music.
Nowadays it is best to go out and buy CDs than to download song from music sites for free, because the RIAA is the number one fighter when it comes to pirating music. Go onto YouTube and watch your favourite music video online. Bookmark the page so that you have easy access to it the next time you want to watch it. The sites that offer MP3 tracks for a small payment are usually sites such as Nokia and other cell phone stores.
These sites are legit. Pay for it and know that it is legal downloading. Support the artists and singers by purchasing their music instead of pirating it. This way, they can continue making music for their fans. You can always convert the legal tracks to MP3 and transfer it to your iPod. Don’t violate copyright laws, because you will be caught. Hundreds of sites are sued because of this. Be on the safe side. Do not download songs from music sites for free, but rather watch your favourite music video online at no cost other than your Internet bandwidth useage.
