Mp3 Rocket - mp3rocket.com - is a little different from the other sites that advertise billions of free downloads and then take money for recommending and supporting free P2P file sharing software. Instead they offer a free and premium version of their file sharing program built from Limewire code.
The advertising on mp3rocket.com can still be misleading. Visitors may think they are signing up for a service that offers over 12 billion legal music and movie downloads. Instead they are gaining access to a file sharing program.
This brings up several questions:
- Is file sharing legal?
- File sharing in and of itself is legal as long as the files are not copyright protected. What they don't tell you is that a huge majority of P2P network files are copyrighted content and therefore illegal to download.
- The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has taken legal action against more than 30,000 people for downloading and/or sharing copyrighted music.
- Does P2P file sharing software normally cost money?
- No it does not nor does Mp3 Rocket force you to pay for it. They do however sell a premium version which seems fair as long as people know what they are buying.
- Is Mp3 Rocket doing anything illegal?
- A disclaimer in small print at the bottom of their home page will advise you to follow all copyright laws. Hmm I wonder how many of the 12 billion files that leaves you to download...
