I always understood that recording songs off the radio was legal as long as you didn't sell the tapes. This would be the law of the USA, under the Supreme Court decision known as "The Sony" case, with respect to recording TV shows, deemed to be "legal" as a "fair use" for personal time-shifting.

In other countries it may not be legal: you would be duplicating the work without a license, which is one of the exclusive rights of the copyright holder. This is true regardless of whether you derive income from the duplication.

Of course, you can record songs from radio station and transfer to you ipod. I prefer to record music from different radio stations,such as XM, AOL,Yahoo radio,etc. It is total free. Then save the record audio as mp3,WMA, WAV, AC3, M4A, AAC, OGG, APE,etc.

No it is not, as long as you do not sell the songs you record because then it is illegal. In other words if you are making a profit then yes it is illegal.

Recording webradio is a great and legal way to get free music. There are a lot of free web radio recording tools to record web radio streams. But most of them are not very comfortable.But there is one tool, which searches for your desired music by supervising over 15,000 web radio stations and saves the tracks finally cutted and with ID3 tags, album covers and song lyrics at your hard space. You only have to wait - and you will get all the songs you ever wanted. Free and legal.This tool is called streaming audio recorder. It can record music from different radio stations, such as XM, AOL, Yahoo radio, etc.

Snowtape: it's $1.99 but well worth it. The music you record you can't play in iTunes but it stores it on a playlist for you

Considering that recording studios sell special versions of their songs, licensed to be use for TV, radio, movies, etc. I would have to say no, it is not legal to download music from the internet (from any service or program) and use on a radio show, internet or otherwise.

no p2p downloading is legal, downloading someone else purchased CDs is legal. Legal downloading is when you purchase the music but, remember just because you have purchased the music does not mean you can share it. Off the air recordings from the radio, TV is legal providing you do not sell them. Recording movies or music from cable is legal also providing you do not sell them. Can you share the movies and music you record from cable, the answer is yes. Is it legal to record off the internet from a radio station, I would believe that it would be but not yet approved or not approved.

research. of course, there are exceptions. they find out what is the most profitable and most likely to be a "radio jam." major record labels only see in green. also, just get timbaland to produce your song and that will be at least one single/radio pick.

It's not legal to record a song off the radio: the license that is granted is only to the station and per play or a period of time. You as a listener have no recording rights, so there is no comparison to made between legality.

If the songs are copyright protected and have been uploaded without permission then no it is not legal.

Most were played on live radio broadcasts by the studio band. Other ways you could get new songs if you had the money was buying the sheetmusic, piano roll, or record.
