Howdy:

Get them from any site that is legal.. You WILL have to pay for them if they are still under copywrite.. To ask what to use to pirate them is very unethical as anyone taking GeekU training would know!!

Suck it up and buy what you want!!

the programs are free, yes. However, downloading copyrighted music, programs, movies etc is NOT legal unless you pay for it.

As Kat said, the programs are legal, however downloading a copyrighted song or movie is illegal, unless you pay for it.

I would suggest Itunes.

No, the programs themselves are not illegal. They are ok...but using them to download copyrighted material IS illegal.

Hmmm, wait. It is illegal in the US and many other countries, but not all. I do not know about the laws where you live in Australia. You really should check and find out so you don't get into any trouble.

Yes

www.Itunes.com

Songs for download are 99cents/song.

you can also download songs from Walmart for 88cents/song, however there have been issues burning these songs onto CDs and transfering them to iPods, as Walmart.com keeps the copyright label on their songs.

You can use Credit or Debt cards to charge songs off of iTunes.

debt card is just like a credit card, except it comes firectly out of your checking account, and does not have to be paid back to the credit card company.

Its almost like a Check, but in card form...
