|AlltheWeb MP3 File Finder|
Any luck with your searches?
I never seem to get what I want from the AlltheWeb's MP3 Files searcher. Half of them are broken links. Search for someone as popular as Bryan Adams hardly gives 8 results.
And isn't it illegal to link directly to MP3 files? If no, what is the difference between what AlltheWeb is doing and what Napster used to do?
|illegal to link directly to MP3 files |
Not if the music is not copyrighted by the author. You can make a song and put it online for everybody to download and listen to. As long as you made it.
It IS illegal to copy copyrighted material - wether it be mp3's, text, images etc.
Sure Fast should not link to illegal material - prolly why you don't find much popular music there ;)
IANAL but I don't thint this is 100% correct.
|Not if the music is not copyrighted by the author. |
Any original work is automatically copyrighted, but as you imply an author may choose to distribute his copyrighted work for free.
|It IS illegal to copy copyrighted material |
It's not always illegal to copy copyrighted material; that's the basis of the current, and probably never-ending, "fair use" debate.
Good points Longhaired_Genius.
