    So iTunes will burn cd's and everything else and let you buy music from iTunes.. heres my question: Is there a program for mac like kazaa lite that lets you download music?.. or does everything have to be paid for? :cool:

    Just a warning...

    Against the rules to ask or post about file sharing software...apparently some unscrupulous patrons use those kinds of programs to illegally download music....

    Yes, there's a great program out there that lets you download music...

    iTunes. Just go to thier store- pick out any song or album you want, buy it and download it. Couldn't be eaiser.

    Oh, what's that- you want FREE? Well, lucky enough- iTunes has been giving away a new song each day this past week...joy.

    Is "file-sharing" construed as illegal? If so, what are the words to describe the legal sharing of files?

    Usually, in many (perhaps most) countries.

    "apocryphal," "hypothetical" and "dubious."

    In itself it's not actually illegal though that is only the case if you either own the copyright on the thing you're sharing (eg a program or song you wrote) or you have permission from the copyright owner (as is the case with many Linux distributions).

    To be honest though the vast majority of file sharing is illegal (breaches the rights of the copyright holder)
