Specs: Windows 7
I'm having an argument with someone about downloading free music. I have this new i pod touch and i don't have a lot of songs yet for it. They want to download limewire to my computer, telling me its safe as long as you be safe about it. I'd rather buy the damn music. Am i wrong?

I think you know what the answers are going to be to this considering this is a legal forum and cant encourage piracy.

I may be wrong, but I think that www.winamq.com only lets you play music on your browser. It does not let you download music. So, it wouldn't be a solution for those trying to legally ramp up the content of their music libraries in say...itunes.

Assuming I am right about this, I would think the free version of Spotify might be an even better option. It allows you to stream songs to your computer, create playlists that are accessible on your computer any time, and has a library of over 14 million songs. I have yet to find a song it doesn't have in its library.

But, to be able to download a song from Spotify you need to buy its paid version. One is $4.99/month and one is $9.99/month. I don't know if the $4.99 version allows downloads.
