    Buy songs. I don't know if its illegal or not but you're not suppose to do that. And its just a webpage which intends to deceive you as if you've got viruses. Its not from your phone.

    Yes it's legal and there is no copyright infringement using that process. But thanks for the feedback and I've already located the source of that fraudulent pop up. It was generated by a Psafe hacking program which the developer team I contacted and presented the issue to fix that hacking website program that was linked to Psafe applications.

    I guess it's a YMMV,depending on where you live & what you intend on doing w/the music once downloaded:
    http://www.flvto.biz/how-to/is-it-legal-to-download-music-from-youtube/
    Either way,I gotta admit,the idea of d/l music from YouTube never crossed my mind.

    I'm glad its been fixed. And also, I'm glad you're not committing a crime. But just so you know, I think YouTube doesn't allow users to "download" public videos. Even if it's converted to mp3 file. If it does, you don't need to use such website because YouTube must have a download button on right under the video player.

    It's mostly old songs that's hard to find that the video is converted into mp3 format. The songs that has a copy block on it and can't be converted into MP3 format. So the ones that can be converted is totally legal.

    I do appreciate the info,as I stated earlier, the thought never actually crossed my
    mind.

    I like my music, although I'm not the enthusiast I once was.
    I used to subscribe to two music services, but, that was a bit overkill.
    If I hadn't got in on Google's $7.95/mo. deal, perhaps I'd look elsewhere, such as you have.
    GPM probably doesn't have the extensive/rare/obscure items, but, it works for me.

    Yeah,both work quite well system-wide,not just in the browser.
    I don't mind an ad here or there,but,most go overboard with the flashing/phishing/annoying as hell appearance.If the devs do not offer a viable option (Pro version of apps/etc..) I feel it is well within my right to keep the crap off my phone.

    For instance,an ad placed between paragraphs,fine,but the obnoxioux ones flickering away (I'M LOOKING AT YOU CHEETAH MOBILE,YOU F****** B******* !) have NO place on my phone.

    I understand, but that's the reason why Android Forum was made available so we Android users can learn and be taught from one another.
