Multimedia entertainment found on the Internet often comes free of charge, such as when watching an upcoming movie trailer, listening to Internet radio, or watching the latest news. With broadband Internet access, downloading these media files onto your hard-drive becomes as easy as 1-2-3 and takes up only a few minutes of time.

Although downloading the MP3s of an entire album is quite easy on the Internet, it is still illegal if those MP3s come from an unauthorized source. Composers and authorized parties, such as recording houses, are allowed to distribute the music for which they own the copyright, but Internet users who make or distribute a pirated copied of these songs are committing an illegal act.
