    illegal? depends if you should. youre not going to get in trouble because you made a few downloads, its more of just is the source safe. think of this from the virus point of view instead of the legal point of view. if you really dont want to download illegally then use playlist sites and just listen to songs online. Imeem.com works great for this (it plays the entire song). You can listin to just about any song you want, you just cant illegally download them from the site.

    If it is too good to be true it probably is. If the site is allowing free downloads of music that you have to pay for in online stores or at the record stores then you can be sure its probably illegal.

    if it's linked by the record company or the artist, you can download it (I believe)

    If You have find the music online and download it then it is not illegal because you tube has a largest collection of movies and songs which we listen and download free. That is not illegal.

    The quote didn't say if you find it on YouTube. It said if you find it online it's okay because YouTube does it.
