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?

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 ;)

Rumbas,

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.
