jamglue is an online community where you can listen to or mix music from a library of user-contributed music. jamglue was launched in december 2006, and supports a community of over a million users, who have contributed over two million mixes and tracks (crunchbase, march, 2010).
i was about to check my account at jamglue.com when i found out that the website has been shutdown due to copyright issues. anyone can upload or download music from this website for free.
illegal downloading of music is a violation of copyright laws. the illegal downloading of music denies artists, and those involved in the production of music, payment for their work. downloading copyrighted music without permission is stealing, illegally downloading of music is the equivalent of shoplifting. in essence, it is taking something that does not belong to you.
