    Default MP3's and the law

    Anyone got a line on what constitutes an "illegal" file? What I mean is, what makes it a crime to make a file available for download? Does it have to be the full-length, unaltered track?

    The reason I ask kinda stems from a couple years ago when I DL'd a new George Harrison song and a new Fleetwood Mac tune. Both tracks had a voice fade in at certain points in the song that said something to the effect of "something-something - First Listen". Wasn't sure what I was hearing at first as the voice was faint, but still I could tell it wasn't part of the song. I figured it was to prevent someone from wanting to pass it off as THE original tracks, thereby making it legal for free download.

    Anyone know what le scoop is on original tracks versus altered files?

    I have read of incidents where the record company would flood the filesharing programs with copies of songs that were of lesser quality. This was in an effort to try and prevent people from making copies of the actual songs.

    Unfortunately you just admitted committing a federal crime, regardless of the condition of the protected material.

    I heard something about that....from poor quality songs to completely fake files.
