If I store some MP3s on my website, to listen to when I'm at school, etc.. will I get sued/fined by the RIAA or arrested, or will I get a cease & decist/warning first?

Thanks.

As long as it is copyrighted material and you do not have a release to have it on your web site, the RIAA will more then likely send you a letter of their intentions. The way they are suing college kids for downloading music (average payment is around $3000) I wouldn't take the chance.

My advice would probably to password protect it or something so only you can access it or find it.

How do these sites like imeem.com get away with it? Also, how come RapidShare don't get sued when people upload illegal stuff on it?

Don't know about that first one, but as long as RapidShare complies with any DMCA takedown notices they get, they will be fine.
