    So why not? It´s like iTunes.

    But take a look at www.radiotracker.de! It rips internet radio legally. With the demo you can test it one week or 100 songs. I just bought it, it´s great.

    You don't have to spend money on an internet radio ripper... StationRipper is free in its basic version, so you can save those 15 €

    Did you already run it? It seems like it´s shareware with limited functions until you pay 14,99$. ( http://www.stationripper.com/buy.htm )

    I like radiotracker more (tough I didn´t test StationRipper), because SR seems not to have the possibility to limit bandwidth, data or time.

    the limits are that you can't record several streams at a time... but i deleted it anyway, because the the program didn't recognise the beginning and the end of a song correctly, so you always have a couple of seconds from the last song in the new file... so you would have to cut it manually. but with the bandwidth i had no problems at all, i had it running in the background and kept surfing or listening to another station the same time...

    Except it's about 6 cents a song instead of 99!
    I wondered if anyone had had any experience with giving a credit card to these guys. Just being careful!
    radiotracker isn't what I need, I want to but songs.....cheap and legally if possible.

    I belive the service is illegal at the very least outside Russia and isn't shut down only because of lack of laws in Russia. See http://www.cdfreaks.com/news/9655

    For them to sell outside Russia they would have to reach agreements with the organisation in each country who collects the royalties.
