How do you know if you're downloading music or other files illegally?
I don't understand how people can download music illegally -- as in the logistics of it. Once, a woman was sued for a substantial amount of $$ for downloading music illegally, she claims ignorance. Seriously, how can this happen?
Seems pretty simple to me. If you're downloading a music CD/album or a video/movie/TV show without paying for it, the odds are you're doing it illegally.
The answer to this question is simple: IF YOU DIDN'T PAY FOR THE SONG, IT'S ILLEGAL (period!)
You can download music legally if the license is free or at least free-loyalty licenses. However, most music are for commercial purposes and so the does the license that comes with it.
So, if you didn't pay for it, it's illegal. If you download it from iTunes and you bought it, it's legal.
P2P torrent sources are illegal.

I cannot find a group that supports illegal immigration. Yet we cannot stop it. Now that is pathetic. So we must conclude that without saying it, some - many in America support it and do what they can to stop control of...
