There are plenty of sites with free music for download, including libraries, independent music labels wanting to get tunes out, obscure music archives at universities, etc. If police in the US or Canada are searching my mp3, how do they know if a file is "legal" or a copyright infringement? For example, for a song on my phone, under Preferences, the file says "Copyright: free". What does that mean?
I go to Canada all the time and don't want to wind up detained or hassled over something like this. I know I'm being paranoid, but humor me.
I would just leave the mp3 at home but CBC is fun for about 15 minutes only. Last time I returned from Canada a US guard searched through my camera, and I have read that phone searches are standard if you get the second-level search in either country.
