Download Clickster, to search for MP3 files online
Clickster enables you to search for and download mp3 files from the Internet in a legal and safe environment. Because Clickster sources mp3’s which are hosted on web servers, you can expect high download speeds.
Clickster displays the full url of each track. This information could be useful to users looking to add the track to a playlist for embedding into a MySpace or other webpage. The integral MP3 Player within Clickster allows the user to play/stream an mp3 file without having to download the file first.
Users can compile Playlists of mp3’s which they have found online, configure their own media player and Clickster will deliver the code to embed your Playlist and Media Player into a webpage, blog or MySpace area.
Clickster also allows you to tune into a shoutcast radio station, offering a full Stream Ripping feature. It will rip every track broadcast and save it as a separate mp3 file; complete with Artist and Track name. Clickster will even save these ripped tracks directly to your iPod or mp3 player.
MP3’s can be ripped from any MySpace page and downloaded to your PC or directly to your iPod or other MP3 player.
The legal cases brought by the recording industry against P2P users, in both the States and Europe, were successful because of the ‘File Sharing’ element of these networks. The individuals sued were all guilty of ‘sharing’ and therefore ‘distributing’ material in violation of copyright. Not one has been pursued for ‘downloading’.
