Download all the music you want for free... with a catch

Speaking of music downloads, there's a new site called SpiralFrog.com that lets you download all you want for free. It features more than 800,000 songs and videos and it is supported by advertisements. The only catch is that you have to log on to the site once a month or the music locks up (to discourage people from sharing the free songs).

I found out about it on Marketplace, which also has a really interesting report on people who are wrongfully accused of stealing and sharing music online. The RIAA says when you go fishing for tuna, sometimes a few dolphins get caught up in the net.... and those "dolphins" have to pay thousands in legal fees for something they never did! There's a second part to the story airing on this afternoon's show from the RIAA's point of view. I seriously recommend checking this story out -- it's scary stuff.
