Are sites that say their music downloads are "free" reliable

by Angeline Booher / January 24, 2008 1:34 AM PST

I was looking in Google for a couple of genres of mp3 free downloads (Christmas and patriotic).

If a site says that it "guarantees" that the artist(s) has given permission, is that reliable?

This music is "old standards", and beyond.

The iTunes free site does not have such a selection.

Thank you.

Without any further information about those sites, only you can make the determination as to whether what they say is reliable.

Did you have any place in particular in mind?
