Most likely.....most free music websites are illegal

ABBA's music is protected by copyright laws. It is illegal to download them for free.

Most of the time. If you download music from websites like Limewire it is definitely illegal.

Maybe... It depends on where you are downloading the music from. Some music is free to download and it is legal, but, not all music you can download for free is legal. If you download the music from a website that you pay for each song then it is legal. If you are downloading music for free from a file sharing website then that is illegal. If you download the music from a website that has legal rights to distribute that music and they give it free of charge then it would be legal.

Downloaded music for free ANYWHERE is illegal. I do it anyway.

You should not download free music online , that is illegal . If you want new music, you can get a CD, download off Amazon, iTunes , or other websites that sell Mp3s .

The most popular site you can download music is itunes. They have done away with free music downloading sites because it was illegal. Sometime itunes offers free songs though.

They have free music on iTunes, but if there's music that's free other websites, but not free on iTunes, it's probably illegal.

Yes you can download music for free from other sites, By the way Lime Wire is not illegal however whatever you download over it is illegal. Go on You tube Converter which is probably the best and safest way to get all music for free. so go to you tube converter and you can download music to your itunes playlists for free without doing anything illegal which could get you in SERIOUS trouble

Limewire itself is legal, but downloading music off it for free is not.

you could download inapporiate music and you could go to jail

It is illegal to download licensed music like that for free. You could download it for a small fee on iTunes and listen to it for free possibly on YouTube or Spotify.
