It works, but you need to know the IP address of the computer sharing the music. To know that you need to know the person, and if you know them, why not trade via an iPod? This is not a Napster type program, yet...

KEEP 4.0 AND 4.01! Make 2 copies of iTunes. It works. Have your cake and eat it too. Call one "iTunes 4" and the other "iTunesSuperCoolWebStream 4.0". That's it, drama over. Tell Application "Finder" to activate "Life".

Excellent ap. Does just what it says it will do. Good job! I'd like to see a feature that lets you stop the current download without completely emptying the cue list. If one song stalls, you can't delete it and retain the rest of the songs in the que.

iLeech is one of two programs out there that allows you to view a friends iTunes music files. The other being iTunesDL. Both are great programs, but the edge goes to iLeech. With a more intuitive interface, more features and team that is quickly making changes to meet the needs of their users. There are still a few things that could use improvement or are just my own feature requests: * Being able to download an entire album. * View iTunes star ratings * Being able to open the download folder..just a simple button that reveals it in the finder. * An alternating background color for seperate song titles..getting away from the solid white background would make it easier to match a song with its information to the right. * If you click Clear Queue, there should be a confirmation dialog. Imagine having like 50 songs in your queue and you accidentally clear it..ouch. ALL IN ALL...this is a great app, and I feel the developer is really putting some good time and thought into it. Can't wait to see the next version. These comments refer to v .031

We very well know Jack Valenti, and this is the kind of stuff that gives fuel to his arguments about piracy. I'm sorry to see that you're still stuck in some distortion reality field that prevents you from seeing that.

If you think it is wrong to oppose Jack Valenti and his band of rich thugs...don't download it. That is all. If you are unaware of who this man is, read bout the "Super DMCA Initiative" @ the EFF. By the way, by sharing files one is not necessarily a thief. This is a great site - stop slagging it.

Difference here is that this thing is marteked directly at Mac users, specifically announced for 'saving streams' (read the description). Yeah, knives can be used to kill people, but at least TV stations don't let knives companies advertise it on their their station as 'a tool to kill and murder people'

When Sony (for exemple) distribute music and then make a miniCD burner, i suppose it's not for making pancakes. Is that legal? If a policeman give you some drugs and then put you in jail! And in the years before nobody's talking about pirating music if you use a minitape to share your last Beatles album with friends... So we said in french: You can't have the butter and the money of the butter! That's immoral!

DeCSS also has "legitimate uses", and look what trouble it causes people that even LOOK at it.

I should hope that building demolition applications would be posted here and worked on in an open source community so that the next time a contractor is granted a permit to demolish an uninhabitable, decrepit, and/or condemned building; they do the planning on a mac and get it right instead of anyone getting hurt. Yes, the unconstitutional law is that you cannot link to which circumvents ; however, there is a legitimate use for this product. As a federal judge has ruled that 'filesharing services' have legitimate uses (conflicting ruling was issued the same day or the next EST), it can only be assumed that this software is legal to use only if you either a) live outside of the United States or b) believe in the rights enshrined in the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I noticed that I could only download this from one sf mirror, but when I tried to dl itunesDL from the link at macupdate it worked instantly. It seems that MU believes in the rights that individuals should have. I do not pirate music. I will not label everyone who does as a criminal. If I record something and want to share it then that is generally legal. Will videotapes or weddings be banned from iDVD's because they may contain 'here comes the bride' which in another year may have a (read this word and think about how often it has been ignored) "RETROACTIVE" copyright extension to a new 'anonymous non-existent or unknown legal entity" (ANUL or $ANUALLY) until the governments of all the world nations vote to remove the protection? Apple's stock is not going to go much above the point it is at until after WWDC, if that's what you're worried about. The Major labels know that most of the things in the Apple catalog are available online for free already. The Major labels also know that most of the popular music they have placed on cds instead of optical disks which may or may not play in your player because of 'protection' is already out there. With a 3 or 5 share limit, itunes will not become a massive source/client of audio (legal or illegal) re-distribution. This will no effect the renewal of contracts or expansion into windows world; if that is what you are worried about. This is a very useful utility which allows me to sync my machines at work or home whenever I add legally purchased or owned music to either machine so that when I go to any of them with my ipod I can autosync and not have to hack past any protection. Transfering music files by any method including sneakernet is not illegal, immoral, or wrong provided you have the 'right' to use those files and believe in the system which grants or withholds those 'rights' Nice economy we have here with everyone afraid to produce anything because they might include some code which could be construed to have been backwards reverse engineered through interception of brain waves and is therefore defacto pattented and illegal unless you make large political bribes or belong to the old boy network (in which case you won't even know what a mac is).

Ever heard of a thing called 'contributory copyright infringment'. There's some university students that could tell you a thing or two about it, as well as the guy that LINKED to the decss stuff. Kinda destroys YOUR flawed argument, doesn't it?

" Yeah? Well so is the law, of which MacUpdate will hear of RSN" Do you realize how flawed the reasoning that this is MUs fault is? They didnt make the program, they arent hosting the program. So of all of you who are writing angry reviews, how many of you have also written angry email to the developer and sourceforge? I see a whole lot of bums who are taking shots at MU because its easier then blaming the real culprits. Classy.

I could very well use this to download music from my home computer to my work computer. It's not EEEVIL. Besides, there's still that 5-user limit.

>5 stars for balls and a great idea...... Spoken like a true thief. I don't agree with your reasoning Mac Udpate. If there was an project on sourceforge that calculated the ratio of materials for explosives against the structural integrity of buildings would that be posted here as well? A stretch for sure. But this program is only used to exploit a flaw in itunes and faccialtate the theft of copyrighted materials. Please consider removing as others have mentioned.

This needs to be strongly discouraged. By posting this application MacUpdate is condoning the Authors desire to support music piracy. It is not clear whether this will work with AAC or Audible encoded material purchased online, but I strongly urge MacUpdate to remove this application from the system.

I recommend! A very good app for the intended purpose. I just need someway to make the Servers public. Could have some way to set where the musics will be saved. But it saves the musics under the Artist / Album hieraquy wich is very nice.
