What country you live in may matter.

But look at FREECORDER if you need to record something as well.

But if you record such, put it on CDs and head out on the streets to sell your newly made CDs, or place such on a P2P share, then your chances just went from almost nothing to possible.

In the US, there is fair use which pretty much is up for interpetation but if you are not tossing out copies at people, then its very unlikely you will have any issue.

I am not a lawyer.

Warning! BoomBox Internet Radio Player has SPYWARE.

When you install this program you'll see a checkbox asking you if you want to install some casino software. Make sure you uncheck this box before you click the Finish button. It'll still stick an icon for the software on your desktop, but you can delete the icon and corresponding install files... unless you like gambling online. "

As such, I strongly advise you never install this.
