That's ironic. Downloading is legal, but uploading is illegal. But, if there's a download, there's always an upload. So, an illegal act is required to perform the legal act of downloading music.
bear in mind it's an international system. there is no need for one act to be illegal.
the point that xzxzzx made was a good one, though. downloaders have never been cracked down on. the "music thieves" have never been the victims. only those generous enough to share
