Downloading MP3s Legally and Not-so Legally

Today there are countless ways in which to download music off the Internet, as well as countless options of where to download MP3s. One may download their MP3s from a service such as the iTunes Music Store, Yahoo Music or eMusic that charges per song or album.

Either way one sees it, downloading MP3s is incredibly popular with music lovers. Is downloading an MP3 from a bittorrent illegal if you already own the song? The music recording industry states it is stealing because consumers paid for the song in one particular format (e.g. cassette tape) and are not entitled to another format without paying for it. Music fans argue they paid for the private use of the song, not the format it resided in.

Music artists are even encouraging this by offering some of their songs on their Web sites available to download for free. In conclusion, have fun with your MP3 collection and don't let all the lawsuits and negative press keep you from purchasing an MP3 digital music player or from downloading music off the Internet.
