I do not know how to figure it out, then I try to find a way that can help me make it without any effort. I cannot imagine that I can finally work out.

edward2011 likes getting free music and who knows what else. "Rip," as in "rip-off," is a good term for taking stuff of value that you didn't pay for. Sounds like shoplifting to me. Let's just call it theft.

Maybe edward2011 works every day for free. Maybe he doesn't have to pay for utilities or car repairs or shoes, so he doesn't need to be paid for his work that benefits other people.

Way to go edward2011! You are a classy & lucky guy. It's like magic, yes?

Open your eyes any business that has control to get this music on the air is ripping you off, the musicians off and anyone else that they can. Pirates are not the enemy here...your pointing the finger at the wrong people but that's what "they" want you to believe is that the "little guy" is the enemy so you will help fight their wars.

Who is "they" and "the little guy" and the "enemy?"

Why do you think there is such a thing as a free lunch in this universe?

Apparently you've never been self-employed and responsible for supporting yourself and your family with income that you receive as a result of your creative work.

I've been a self-employed software developer for 15 years, which isn't unlike being a musician. I get an idea, followed by a blank piece of "paper" and I make something available that others may find valuable.

I know that you have no idea how many thousands of hours and thousands of dollars are required (up front, mind you, before the first sale) to get from the blank page to a product that is useful and can be distributed.

Who do you think pays for the equipment and the floorspace and all the other expenses required to make something out of nothing? I do! ("them" in your terminology.)

I'm not ripping anyone off. I'm just a Joe trying to make a living doing something that I like and am pretty good at, which also benefits others. I need to be paid for my work and you, if you find value in my work, should be willing to pay in exchange.

The last time I checked (kidding) Intel wouldn't give me a free motherboard, Western Digital wouldn't give me any new HDDs, and Martin wouldn't give me a new D-28 guitar because I was such a nice guy.

There are no free lunches in the universe. Decent people understand that and behave accordingly.

While you are signing up for the free Pandora account, pay particular attention to item 3 in the terms which reads in part...

3. RESTRICTIONS

You agree that you will not:

3.1 use the Pandora Services to reproduce copyrighted materials;

3.2 copy, store, edit, change, prepare any derivative work of or alter in any way any of the tracks streamed through the Pandora Services;

Hello, thanks for your comment. Well, we just use this software to record pandora music for personal entertainment, but not distribute them in any form. Besides, we can say it is legal to record streaming audio. So do not worry that you will violate the music copyright if using.
If you reread the Pandora agreement, it does not allow music to be recorded for personal use. The personal use you are thinking of is for CDs that you have purchased. Sometimes you are allowed to make one copy to back up your original.

Note also that just because you say it is legal, it is not legal and you can be fined for theft. One of my neighbors got sued by the music industry for copying 34 songs. Her fine is over $200,000. Seems a little outrageous to me, too. She was 17 years old when they sued her.  She will be paying this off the rest of her life.

Thanks for sharing, I have Pandora's agreement in a stack of a million agreements that I plan to read. First I need to download some good music to get in the mood to read them though. Don't be naive, its all business, you think Pandora is 100% ethical? I doubt it.

To the record companies, I say bring it on. They sue average people for ridiculous amounts, and they sued limewire for 75 trillion USD, 13 trillion more than exists in the world. after all that they treat artists like crap and destroy the very industry that has made them all their money. short of going 1984 on us, they'll never stop pirating on a large enough scale to mean anything. To quote Humungus, "just walk away." preventing pirating is a pipe dream.
read 3.1 Again--it says --Thou shalt NOT !!!!!!!!
Here is a tutorial shows you how to download Pandora music, worth trying.

There is a free, open source alternative that works for Last.fm as well. It's called iRadio Capture 2.0, google it.
Please note that this is trial software and cannot record more than 3 minutes of Pandora unless you pay for the software. I deleted it, as I did not think it was worth $39.99.
Although this is technically illegal, due to the terms of use referenced by Dchall8, the fact of the matter is that it has not been challenged in court. My guess is that a) the court would take into account that you are recording the stream for personal use only, and b) the case would be similar to the early video taping cases, where the courts found that recording copyrighted materials for personal use or personal archives does not violate copyright as it does not infringe on the copyright holders ability to sell the product and make a profit. I'm not a lawyer, but it would be nice to have one comment on this.

Alternatives:

Library--I think it's ok to record material you've checked out, and it helps reinforce the artists' popularity in the library system.

Buy songs thru a listener-sponsored website, it helps out the station.

Used CDs n vinyl.

At least sign up for Pandora's paid service, it's REALLY cheap. Doesn't make it any more legal.
