Downloading is not illegal in 90% of cases, uploading is. That is why downloading copyrighted material using torrent clients is illegal and using this program is perfectly fine in most countries.


Copyright law in most countries doesn't care whether you "download" or "upload" copyrighted materials. It only cares whether or not you have rights or permission to have the material in your possession. If you do not have rights, or permission from the one who does have the rights, you may not have that material in your possession.

While the program itself may not be illegal - using it very well may be. In fact, it almost certainly IS illegal to use it if you live in a first world country.

If it is illegal to download material that you do not own the copyright to in the country where you reside - don't download it.


This is where things get interesting. Different countries have different copyright laws. While there have been some attempts to create standardized international copyright laws, you may very well live in a country which does not respect the copyright laws of other nations. This is why many Linux distributions do not offer MP3 support "out of the box", but instead offer it via download from a repository (generally marked as "unsafe", "ugly", "bad" or "restricted). It is also generally marked with a disclaimer saying that it may be illegal to use that download due to copyright and patent laws in your country. The download is illegal in many countries (US and most countries in Europe included), but possibly legal in other countries.

Awesome sauce. Been wanting to try it all day since I read this thread at work and it's fantastic. Just what I've been looking for.

Mad props Ryysa. I'll be using this a lot so if I find any bugs I'll let you know.

So don't have any copyrighted material in your possession that you don't have rights to. Simple.

This sentence fails on so many levels. First of all, you have a huge logical fallacy in here.
Read it yourself. "It almost certainly is, because it may be, because it may not be."
Your reasoning is awful.
That said, no, it's not illegal to use this program in any shape or form whatsoever. Please do familiarize yourself with the law, before making such claims. It is in fact, as "illegal" as it is to use a web browser or search engine.

Actually, I guess you think that you are uber for some reason, and that your law applies everywhere.
I got a newsflash for you. Not a single country in the world respects any other countries law as such, this is why every country has it's own laws, and we don't have a single world law.
Wake up and smell the coffee, your country != World.

In fact, most Linux distributions DO offer MP3 support "out of the box" in the form of for example mplayer. This said, the reasoning behind what you stated, is not that MP3 files are illegal, but that usage of the MP3 format itself requires licensing in some places. However, I don't see at all how this applies in any shape or form to my program. My program does not contain a MP3 decoder. It can't even read ID3 tags.

This download, the program itself, is NOT illegal in ANY country where it is legal to download a browser.
I am the author of the program, and herewith I release the executable of the program to the PUBLIC DOMAIN. Anyone is free to do whatever they want with it. Now this download on THIS forum is completely legal.

If you download copyrighted material using my program, which you do not own the rights to, and if those copyrights are enforced in your country by any law, then that's completely your problem and I shall NOT be held responsible. Attempting to claim otherwise would be like suing Mozilla for the download of a copyrighted file by a random user, who found the file while accessing the Google Search engine from within the Mozilla Firefox browser.
Also, guns don't kill people, other people do.

Please go troll somewhere else. You obviously do not have a clue what you are talking about, and I lost count of the amount of epic fails in your post. Unlike you, I actually read the law to ensure I don't get into any trouble by making this available.

Yeah, I know I shouldn't reply, since they are just trolling, but I need to tell the truth.
Otherwise some people might actually think, that what this person is saying is even remotely correct (which it is not).

Like last time.

In the future, if something breaks, try to check for updates first.
This should hopefully reduce the amount of people messaging me every time it breaks.

If there are no updates, and it doesn't work, please DO message me.

Sure :)
But some "features" are more trouble than it's worth.

If you need an album, then go buy it online. Or torrent it and then buy it online.
If you like someone's music that much, you should support them.

My program is not really meant to download entire albums. It's more meant to scratch an itch.

for the record - right click on the little note when the program is running, and select update.

Yeah I know...
I guess it will spread by word of mouth.

The reason I didn't do autoupdate is that I could get the IP of anyone who opened the program.
While one might say it's good for statistics, I'd say it's way too intrusive.
