Is there LEGAL MP3 Downloading?

mp3 fans and any legal minds here at CP, I've got a question:

Are services that charge an annual fee, or a higher "one time" fee, LEGAL? Or do you have to pay PER SONG, as through Rhapsody, Walmart, or IPOD?

(I know there are some older threads about this, but with the search function still out of commission.....I'm too lazy to dig for 'em.....)

I've come across some one-time flat fee sites, that appear to be reincarnations of Napster....except you pay $50 or so, and download unlimited songs. Seems to good to be true, so I'm wonderin'....I can't access the fine print of their "100% Legal" policy, until you join.

For example:

http://www.mp3downloading.com/mdn/in...pty&keyb=empty

http://www.mp3advance.com/newuser_frm.php

Are these sites LEGIT?

I personally do not trust sites of that nature. It does not come from me interacting with them but they just do not seem legit to me. I guess I still dig ITunes to much as well...

That's my inclination too.....but how can they advertise "100% Legal!"

Anyone know for sure???

It is the interweb. I would go with your gut feeling.

Subscription based services like the new Napster are definitely legal. The only question I'd have is whether or not there are any digital media rights mechanisms built into the downloaded files that can make them expire when your subscription is over. I doubt it, but it's something to check into.

I just use iTunes.

I could use one of these shady services, get a bunch of spyware on my computer, search around for an hour and end up with a bunch of dead downloads, files that wont play, misnamed files, poor quality, etc.

Or I can load up iTunes and get the song I want almost instantly.

Obviously people were never going to stop pirating music of their own volition. But iTunes has the right idea. They've made it quicker and easier to just go through them.

Initially, that's what I thought; but the mp3downloading.com site.....SAYS no spyware, AND they have a "secure" transmission software program (similar to peer guardian, I think) that comes with the initial download.

So, you think if I download the software, and clean it up with spybot and adware...that it would work. Okay.

Do you think it's 'legal?'
