    Does MewSeek use illegal sites or sources? It seems like it must be illegal if the music is really free... I just want to know before I try it.

    Uhhh... it just searches google, and makes it so the iPoT can use it.

    Why does it charge $10 for that? I think I'll just stay away, it seems too weird...

    Any time you download music for free, through a service unrecognized/not allowed by record companies, you are breaking the law. That's called Piracy.

    MewSeek is a Soulseek client.. not a Google client :|
    Hence why it was called iSlsk (iSoulseek)..

    MewSeek is not illegal as it is only an interface for a search engine (the DMCA specially protects search engines). MewSeek does not host any of the files on the search results provided. Given that MewSeek does not have control over these search results, the user is solely responsible for what they search/download, and if they don't have the legal rights over this content, then they are the ones who are breaking the 'law'.

    Yes, I know it sounds a little cheeky but that's how it works, and how everything in the internet works, otherwise Napster, Kazaa, Soulseek, Emule, Bit******* and even [PIRACY.rs] or [PIRACY.mu] would have never existed (altough some faced a few legal issues)

    MewSeek only charges 10 dollars to support the development of the app, it doesn't charge for the content provided or downloaded. Read the TOS for more information.
