Almost certainly illegal, but why worry.

The quality of the downloads was not the best (to say the least!) and unlikely to be cleanable-upable, so no one is likely to make any financial gain from them.

Similarly, I can't see that any of the performers' income would have suffered from their being made available for a short time to those few people who downloaded them out of curiosity.

OK, I know there is a principle involved with sharing of copyright material, and I suspect that there are those who believe that the files in question are just the thin end of the wedge. But really, is it worthwhile dragging it into this thread?

A victimless crime if ever there was one imho, and would be thrown out of court in any right-minded jurisdiction (I hope....)
