The sites themselves are perfectly legal. However, in most countries, using them to trade copyrighted material isn’t…


#3

Actually Kazaa recently went the legal route and are now offering a legal alternative to the file sharing program which as olyteddy mentioned, is a legal program however the way some people put it to use makes their actions with it illegal.

In any case, they have deals set up with some of the major record labels it seems so looks good.


#4

Can anyone tell me if any of the sites listed offer “quality” audio files of complete CDs?

If not, can soemone reply or PM me with a recommended site?

I am an experienced user and I’m looking to change sites

Thanks!
