Do not get immature with me.
While some downloads are legal, it's not recommended, and you're completely missing the point of such sentiments. A lot of ATSers have been on
last.fm since Audioscrobbler.
Most of the provided downloads are given until they are signed, in which case they are then no longer considered legal, the ones that remain on the
site are done so because the artist has issued a grant. That's how it works. It's not a site where you can just go and get any track you want for
free like you're making it sound, in true the quantity of mp3s on the site is very limited. I know as an artist, and the co-owner of a label that the
reason that we've kept off last.fm is because of concerns of copyright infringement, and in fact a lot do.
Please talk like someone more mature in reply to this matter.
it says FREE DOWNLOAD in the middle of the page, no login, or membership required.
It would of been nice if you had actually checked instead of relying on past experience.
Past experience? No, I just know what their terms and conditions are, and how the RIAA does things, and what you are saying and taking it for is not
As for the legality of remixing someone elses lyrics, which are freely avaliable, and making the song a free download, get over it!!
It is illegal to reproduce a remix of ANY track, or use a piece of ANY track excluding WORDS. PERIOD. And redistribute it, unless you have permission
from the artist, or the artist is comfortably aware.
Coldplay - Viva La Vida [Mike Koglin's Bootleg
Nitromethane - Religion
Linkin Park - Shadow of the Day [Abbott & Chambers Bootleg
If you'd like to argue further about that, I can quote the RIAA's policy on copyrighted works.
and what is wrong with that? It gives artists who would not otherwise get airtime an equal running in the online charts.
Who said there was anything wrong with it? I never made that accusition.
Someone had too many cornflakes for breakfast this morning.
