Downloading or uploading copyrighted material is ILLEGAL. Here is what they say on their own website. "Purchasing a membership in does not give you license to download or upload copyright material." They put the burden on you to not download any copyrighted material. That means almost all current music out there will be illegal to download. So what is the purpose of the software if you are trying to not be a thief. The majority of the music you find will be illegal. There are plenty of legal downloads available. They are mostly unknown artist looking to make it. They allow the download of their music. is one site to get free legal music. Some of it is great and some not so great. If you want to stay legal, either pay for downloads or download non copyrighted music.
