Is it legal to upload music?

    YEP!! Sure is. By uploading a song and making it available for others to access for free is distributing copyrighted media illegally. It is the same as if I bought a CD in a store and went home and made 10 copies and gave them to my friends. It's illegal to distribute copyrighted music, software, etc., even if it's for free.

    Just FYI - as LDB stated earlier, it's not the copying of the song that's an issue; it's what you do with that copy. Sounds like you are very consciencious about this and you're doing the right thing by trying to remove your upload.

    So, be safe everybody. Don't pirate .

    Go to and D/L for a buck an album instead.

    I agree that distributing copyrighted material (uploading) is stupid unless you happen to be in one of the more enlightened countries where it is not illegal to do so.

    Downloading the politically correct DRM infected dreck at iTunes for a buck a song is even dumber.
