Many people get around the copyright issue by downloading through a proxy or with a Tor program, that helps you stay anonymous. You can also install an anti-virus program, that automatically scans new files to help you with the virus risk. This is especially important when downloading files with your mobile phone, as android systems typically don’t have any anti-virus protection out-of-the-box. Again, we do not recommend or endorse downloading copyrighted music.
