They operate under the guise that they are meant to allow the free downloading of mp3s that are not copyrighted. I would be willing to bet that there is a disclaimer somewhere in the app that says something to that effect. Even so, take the legality of it out, if you wish. It is still dishonest, fraudulent, and unethical. A form of stealing that no one seems to mind.
