I am Just getting started collecting MP3s and was wondering what is the best site to download MP3s.

I found a site on the internet that claims to have unlimited downloads for $1 per mnth wich sounds like complete BS to me.
scam? (http://unlimitedmusicdownloads.com/index.cfm)

I just want a nice searchable library and the ability to buy songs that I like, and I am not interested in any proprietary filetype crap (apple).

What's the best site out there?

I would also like to avoid copy protection encoding if possible

If you are into independent artists, check out emusic.com. They have a 14-day, 50-download trial period. Pretty obscure stuff, though.

I have also used mperia.com. Also pretty obscure stuff.

Magnatune.com features “shareware” music. Listen and if you like it, you pay what you think it is worth.

For more mainstream tunes, I download from walmart.com.

Hey, do you mind explaining to a web tard how this works, and why it's different/legal from what Napster used to do?

Thanks.

Emusic's not bad, if you can find stuff you like in their selection. You download, you own it and can do whatever the hell you want with it.

Well, file sharing programs are completely legitimate. There is no mandate that the files shared have to be mp3. I use DC++ all the time.

You set a folder as your shared folder, the contents are up to you (except some hubs don't let you share system files) then find a hub that accepts your share amount, and see what there is.

DC++ is the best I have found so far. I love being able to download entire albums/directories if I find something that I like.
