2/5     Hi, I'm looking for a decent mp3 search engine or site that does not
        suck. is a joke.  Almost all the links are broken.
        \_ Try <DEAD><DEAD>, though it might just be as bad.
        \_ I've always been partial to
        \_ You can also look at
           \_ I just tried all of them.  They all suck.  I'm very disappointed
              at all this.  I thought, hey, I'll download some music and play
              it on my PC.  But no, I can't get anything because all the sites
              are all down or busy.  Shit, even warez is not this hard to
        \_ Hey tom, aren't you going to lecture us about Fair Use?
        \_ stealing music is just as reprehensible as stealing software. -tom
           \_ also reprehensible is the idea that only pirated music is
              available in mp3 format.  there are plenty of artists out there
              releasing quality, freely distributable mp3 tracks.
                \_ Those are not the ones which the bozo above is having
                   difficulty finding.  -tom
           \_ Taking from the poor, giving to the rich is not.  Making
              huge profit through laws that protect the vested and entrenched
              interest of the legit racketeers is not.  Well, guess I am
              talking to the wrong crowd.
                \_ spoken like an SOB without a creative spark in him whose
                        only recourse is to steal from those who try to
                        provide enjoyment to others and make a living at
                        the same time.
                   \_As I wrote, I was talking to the wrong crowd.
                        \_ I believe you wanted a bunch of selfish,
                                black-wearing goths who have no respect
                                for anyone but themselves.
           \_ MUSIC WANTS TO BE FREE.
        \_ Question of legality. Lets say you bought a CD and then either a
           lost it or the darn thing was stolen. Is it still okay to download
           mp3 of the tracks from that cd or is this illegal? From what I can
           deduce I think it is alright, but perhaps I am wrong. Just
           wondering --marc
           \_ Probably fair use.  No case law yet, of course. -tom
              \_ That is illegal.  Tom is incorrect.
        \_ Mp3s are used extensively by people to 'preview' music. As such,
           they're very useful, particularly if what you're looking for is
           only available on expensive import. If this something is also rare
           and out of print, Mp3s are VERY useful. As for ripping artists off,
           know your math: the publisher stands to lose the most in the music
           food chain, the artist the least.
                \-how many apples does it take to make apple pie is not a
                math question. --psb
                \_ yeah I hear Madonna lives in a 2-room shack in East
                   Oakland because she's so poor.
                        \_ she doesn't, and that's why Mp3s won't hurt her
                \_ psb troll removed.
