    MP3 files

    Can anyone tell me what the legal position of having MP3's is in the UK.
    I have a large number of MP3's, approx. 17,000. Many of these are copies of CD's that I own but many are not.
    As long as I don't file share can I be prosecuted for having these files?

    None of them are legal, though I'm pretty sure a dimmer view will be
    taken of those that don't correspond to CDs you own.

    Cheers,
