I myself love a good song and as the majority of people, i have downloaded songs off the internet in the past. What i have recently found out is rather shocking. File-Sharing, is illegal. And if you download any song, thats fine, but it must be deleted within 24 hours. Is that all? Or anything else i should know about?

Millions.

But then, someone has to be singled out.

Everything released by an artist on a label I'd assume.

It's still illegals to buy pirated stuff from the continent and bring them back here.

It's illegal to download copyrighted stuff, easy as that.

I was on a course and they told us it is totally legal to download songs, but it is illegal to upload them. So if you find a file that is downloadable you are within your rights to download it. The person making it available for download is the one doing the illegal act.
