Yes, please search for this yourself and look elsewhere, as technically asking that is against the forum rules (illegally downloading music...). Thank you for understanding, and good luck.

It's all good! The mods in these forums are pretty strict, so I'm just saving the hassle.... If you want, you can send me a PM or an email.

Hmmz, maybe I'm wrong... but it differs per country.
Here in Holland, downloading multimedia is strictly legal for personal use/backup purposes.
Only downloading/using (pirated) software is punishable by law.

It also depends on whether the song you want to download is copyrighted content.
So i think downloading songs for personal use is legal, as long as it's:
1. not copyrighted
2. for personal use

I may be mistaken though.

Here a part ripped from a website which offers youtube ripping software:
Quote:
Entertainment spins around music when you are willing to lend your ears and tap your idle feet to the rhythm and the beat. With series of MP3 players and system operative players available to answer your thirst for music, there is little time to hold on to patience. Incidentally the world is infested with the urgency to get things for free which can often be passed on as getting things through illegal means. But if you are among the few righteous music lovers help yourself to download music legally with the You Tube converter.

You have Amazon, artist direct and audio lunch box that cater to your music frenzy ears. They do have categorized music genre and artist based data systems that help you to get your songs and music in moments. Domino Records and Connect are for the ones that look for eccentrics amidst the selling sites. Independent labels find home at E-music which is known to charge about ten dollars if you are intending to buy 40 tracks in a single month. Free bees have their wishes fulfilled in the Epitonic that stores your favorite numbers in mp3 and wma format options. Yet it is too hard to forget Napster and iTunes that are raging across the music world and grabbing customer attention like wild fire. With Convert My Tube, the You Tube converter, you can download your MP3’s to a portable device for your listening pleasure at your own convenience.
Other sites tell:
Quote:
By using the service provided by this site you acknowledge and agree to the following terms of service/use:

1. This service is not to be used to download audio that is copyrighted.
P.S. i can post a script which automates this proces

Regards
