It is verboten everywhere.

I would delete that post but… I dont have that option.  Torrents can be legeal but the deal is the content in the torrent has to be licensed for sharing or you have to pay for it.

People get confused all of the time with the word “Torrent”.  Torrent’s per se are not illegal.  A torrent is a delivery system, that’s all.  Just like CB said, it’s the content contained within the torrent, where the problem lies.  If the content was obtained without permission from the copyright holder, it is indeed illegal.

With that said, there are plenty of legal torrents.  Take for example the last 2 releases from the group ‘Nine Inch Nails’ (Ghosts I-IV and The Slip) were legally trasmitted over the internet via torrents.

But, unfortunately, there is far more illegal content being shared via torrents than legal; so the word ‘torrent’ gets a black eye.

Frostclick and Jamendo (Posted above) both offer legal torrents. Licensed under Creative Commons, which makes it free and legal. 

A new one I found and has TONS of stuff. 

Legal Torrents

Well, CB and GB, I stand corrected :smiley:

I was under that impression that they were all piracy…my bad.

We both know that’s what the original poster (that brought up the “t” word) had in mind, though  :wink:

Found another one! Its all Legit. I checked!

Free Albums Galore

You classical music fans will like this one! I saw, Hayden, Shostakovich, and Mahler, just at a glance. And Scrolling thru a little more I see Mozart, and Puccini, as well as Schubert and Vivaldi. All this is intermixed with Hip Hop, Rock, Pop, Indie, Country, Electronic, and stuff that not even the Pros can classify. I think I found a new favorite for the Obscure freebie albums. 

Im having a pretty Good day for Free Tunes!

These are from Amazons Free music

Eagle Records Live At Montreux 2009 Sampler****

Tomorrows Stars from SxSW

Sub Pop Amazon Sampler****

711 more Free Songs

I really Really Recomend the Sub Pop Sampler and the Eagle Records sampler. Both are Awesome!

I mentioned The Internet Archive on another thread so let’s put it here too. Also, do check out the Other Music Sources page on the Free Albums Galore link provided by CB for a lot of other sources. Their first listing:

The Internet Archive - The ultimate source for open source audio, long out-of-print 78s, netlabels, and live music.

It also has Audio Books & Poetry.

NPR’s Live in Concert from ALL SONGS CONSIDERED

Quite a good number of full concerts. All available for streaming and many (but not all) also available for download in single file podcast form. Subscribe to their RSS feed to get notification as concert podcasts become available. Right now they have a lot of stuff from the current SXSW.

Robisan, Frostclick which Is linked on the OP has over 6 gigs of music from the Current SxSW… Dont know if you are interested. (I think its on the Second page now)

Thanks CB. Unfortunately I don’t do torrents…


For those interested, since it's about to drop out of my RSS feed list, here's a [direct link to the entire SxSW concert by The Decemberists](http://podcastdownload.npr.org/anon.npr-podcasts/podcast/510253/102139597/npr_102139597.mp3) (mp3 - Save file as) from NPR. They did their entire new album ("The Hazards of Love" ) in this podcast concert.

Its cool, but if you are wondering the Torrents are completely cool, no viruses or junk. Its all completely legal, and on the Up and Up. I downloaded all of it and it works great.

I forgot to say a “thank you” for these.  I just got an 8gb card to load ONLY music on it and these free ones help (along wtih the CD’s I’ve bought).  Still not full…

No Problem… I have about a gig and a half of stuff from these sites.

A link I found on the iLounge forums: Evanescence EPs and pre-“Fallen” Material

Six discs worth of stuff (including multiple alternate versions of a few of the hits from “Fallen” ), all fully authorized by the band. Four of the six discs are available in FLAC, btw.
