    Are these songs that are being sold through albums, or CD's?

    Don't quote me, but I'm pretty sure it would be illegal, since you do not have the
    legal rights to sell the music.

    Highly likely to be illegal, unless of course you either own the copyright or have the facilities to pay the original owners of the copyright their royalties, for all 5000 tracks!!

    Yep, illegal. However, you should really ask a qualified legal expert for more advice.

    You could also create a directory that points to where YOU got the music. BUT, again, you'll want to consult an attorney. After all, it may not be a good idea to broadcast that you swiped 5,000 songs. Just a thought.

      Once we know it's illegal, why do we need to ask a legal expert?
