Thread: Downloading Music = Fined?

  1. #1
    I can't seem to get a definite answer.

    I know that file sharing is illegal, where you have uploaded songs to let other people access, but is just downloading a song, say, Burning Down the House by the Talking Heads, going to get you fined?

    It differs from country to country, but in short, yes.

    You're obtaining a copyright protected medium that you have not paid for. Do not pass go. Do not collect £200/$200. Directly to jail.
