Legal Downloads   

In the links below are some of the best ways to get music, movies, and books for free.  Remember peer-to-peer (P2P) or file sharing sites are only legal if you are sharing public domain or non-copyrighted material.

Please note - many of these sites may be blocked during school hours - but they should be safe for at home use.  Many of these require an email address or Facebook account to unlock the free music.

Jamendo - songs on Jamendo have been made available through Creative Commons.  They also have phone apps available.

NoiseTrade - is a great place to discover new artists.  They have books too!

Free Music Archive - again, Creative Commons licenses these songs.  You can see the licensing requirements for each song/album.  There's also a way to contact the artist for additional licensing.

Pure Volume - a music discovery site.  No account needed!

Amazon - this is the free music library on Amazon.  There are 8,000 songs available for free download.

Internet Archive - over 3,000,000 sound files available.

SoundCloud - I think you all know what this is.  The paid accounts offer more choices.

CC Trax - mostly instrumental and electronica.  Entire albums can be downloaded.

eMusic - not free, but rather inexpensive

Amazon Prime - if you have Amazon Prime for your house, you have a huge amount of free music, books, and movies that are available for streaming or used on a Kindle.

Cumberland County Library - if you are not taking advantage of the Cumberland County Library, you are definitely missing out!
