It's just coded so that it can't be shared, alot of places that you can legally download from, do that, it's call a distribution limit. My mate you round it once, I think he opened it in Audacity, saved it as an autacity file, opened that, and changed it to a .mp3.

Failing that, he could record straight from his sound card, and then just convert it to an mp3, hundreds of ways around it, 95 of those are p2p programs lol
