Throughout past few years downloading music on internet has increased in popularity. At same time though, it has become illegal through many companies to download music as musicians and artists have been losing money on their CD sales. With many people being sued in past couple years for downloading music, is it really possible to download music legally anymore? If so, at what price will it cost you to download music?
As music sites such as Napster and Kazaa and many more have attempted to create sites to download music for free, they have just increased problem that much more. Some of users of these programs have learned hard way that music does not come free, as they were sued for illegally downloading music.
Today there are many sites in which you can download music at where they claim it is 100% legal. The latest music file formats used are Windows® Media (WMA), Advanced Acoustic Coding (AAC) and Atrac 3, and are very popular as it increases sound quality making it closer to an actual CD bought in stores. Another great advantage is that many sites such as SonicSelector Service on MSN allow you to preview music before buying it. Many sites today also offer a three-day trial of their music downloading site, and then after that you will have to begin paying a monthly fee. So it is possible to download music legally online, but at what cost?
Pressplay.com offers unlimited music for a price of $9.95 per month and then you also have to install software from their site. The downloaded music is non-burnable and once your subscription runs out you no longer have access to any of your songs. Rhapsody at listen.com also charges $9.95 per month for non-burnable music, but instead of downloading music you download a music player that gives you access to songs.
