Surely this cannot be legal? Isn’t this Internet media recorder software in the same league as “MP3 Downloader Pro” that enables millions of people around the world to find and download any music they want, for free?
How can this be legal? It is a tool that enables anybody on the Internet to record anything they find!
This demonstrates what a lawless world we live in. A commercial enterprise manufacturing software that enables anybody who finds something they like online, rather than buy go and it, to make a recording of it!
- Go to your favourite music station (Internet radio) and record your favourite tracks.
- Find your favourite artists music videos on YouTube and record the music to your computer.
- Whenever you hear a track you like on a music streaming website, record it.
- Find one of your favourite audio books on a ‘dodgy’ website and record it.

I’m sure that there are terms and conditions with the software that protect the developer from all liabilities with regards to copying copyright material, but isn’t that exactly what the software is designed to do?
But we could always do this?
Well, yes, kind of.

It’s the wrong mindset…
I was the DJ at a wedding a couple of years ago and when I was asked for a track I didn’t have; the response from the guest was “can’t you just get it off YouTube?“
