Pass-Along Song Downloads? Are these Legal?
Mar 17th, 2006 at 8:49am
 
I wonder if the guys know that there is someone on Ebay selling downloads of their songs. I wonder if it's a legal business? (They claim it is.)

I've bought downloads from that site.  I don't see any difference between it and any of the other sites like iTunes, Napster, etc.  The music isn't being downloaded illegally as long as it is being paid for.

I don't know much about Napster... I'm assuming that the company has to buy the music and pay royalties to the artists?

i know i have mentioned this before but i am from the old school of thought.
if you want someone's music, buy it!
i understand downloading might help an up and coming artist who is wiithout a label or on a small label and wants more exposure, but i think those are more the exception than the rule.

It's on Ebay. You have to pay $0.99 a download, so yes you are paying. I'm just wondering if any of the money goes back to the artists....
