"Is this legal?"

The application itself is perfectly legal. It's not a host for any content, all it's doing is pointing you to content, which is the same thing that Google does.

With that said, I'll state the obvious, this program doesn't do anything that you can't do with Google or one of several specialized search engines.

Let me make this simple for some of you that appear to be confused:

Downloading copyrighted files OF ANY KIND without the owner's permission and without payment IS ILLEGAL. Period. End of story.

If you want to buy music and other media legally, there's plenty of options and plenty of price points. Sometimes, bands and others deliberately make their songs available as downloads for free, but they do this themselves, on their web site, not on places like RapidShare and MediaFire. The files on those sites are not legal.

Use of this program exposes you to potential RIAA/MPAA lawsuits. While the risk is probably low, the cost for you unlucky ones will be in the thousands, and that's even if you are completely innocent. Is it worth the risk? That's a question only you can decide. I'm just giving you the facts.

That's exactly what I was trying to convey in my posting here. The RIAA and MPAA don't care who is pitching or who is catching,they want to sue the pitchers as well as the catchers.Is it worth the risk? I say NO!

Sounds authoritative and convincing. I will trash the application.
What about YouTube?
There is an app. called YouTube to MP3 also available on mac update which allows one to download and convert a YouTube clip to an audio file. Is this legal?

Jb4 - No it's not, not to mention the audio will sound absolutely awful. www.spotify.com, the premium service is more than worth the price.

I don't think so. I installed it but trashed it right away. I think it is "quasi-legal" It points you to web sites where you can download music and movies but you are responsible not the Developer. I think this spells TROUBLE! I think it is possible that you could expose yourself to law suits from copyright holders. Best to use iTunes and Amazon etc.

Interesting:
After trying again, I found that it only leads to one site.
"mediafire.com"

"Every month, more than 120 million people use MediaFire to send and receive over 714 million files to their friends, family, fans, colleagues,
and clients.

Actually the links found by TuneSeeker are from free file-sharing websites. That means that the user who uploaded the file to those websites is responsible., not you.

Not so! The way the RIAA is going after people they don't give a ding dong about who uploaded or downloaded,they go after the catchers and the pitchers,they don't give a ding dong about who posted they go after everyone who doesn't have a license to use copyrighted material. Ask Kazaa about that.

Interesting; the current Kazaa site offers free music and %100 legal.

"Kazaa - Official Site - Get Unlimited Music Downloads | Kazaa.com
www.kazaa.com
All Your Favorite Hits. 100% Legal"

Yeah After paying a HUGE settlement with the RIAA in the Millions.They got legal as did Audiogalaxy who were the top file sharing sites. I understand Audiogalaxy paid something in the millions as well.
