    Russia has agreed to shut down Allofmp3.com and other music sites based in that country that the U.S. government says are offering downloads illegally.

    I haven't done any downloading for quite a while. Is there anything left out there that doesn't charge?

    Didn't allofmp3.com charge a very nominal fee, like two or three cents per download? or was it completely free?

    Looks like 14 to 18 cents a single, $1.40 to $2 for albums.

    Shotty's right. It was like $2.13 per album, or like $0.15 per song. Insanely cheap -- and very easy.

    Got at least a dozen CDs off that site in the last three months, since someone clued me in on it. RIP indeed.

    I think there's still one or two sites that offer free downloads. I usually only download from itunes, but I seem to remember the last time we had a thread on this that there was one based in the US. Just can't remember the name, time to do a search.

    Vivendi Universal is making their whole catalog available for free.

  10. You can still get free download from Limewire. Download it at http://www.limewire.com. You can also download TV shows, video clips, and movies, along with music.

    so where are we getting free music from?

    im afraid of limewire because supposedly, the music police are surfing it, looking to nab folks.

    didn't they bust up limewire like 6 months ago?

    open to all suggestions ... ipod is stale, still room for 150 songs, and i have a list of about 20 songs i need ...

    I never knew that Web site existed. I've been only iTunes for years now.
