I have bought a new song on Google Play (using Opinion Rewards). Google gives me the option to download the song but I want to know if it's legal or not.

It's hard to say, since you didn't really buy a song, you got some kind of license to listen to it. You need to look at the legal part. Maybe you have to always listen to the some through some Google program; maybe you outright bought a license to copy and play as you want. For example, I found one thing that said in the access type field "Streaming and by permanent download to your computer and/or device", so you could download that.

  • What exactly are you saying? Google opinion rewards is a program that gives you money after you answer surveys. I have no subscription at all!, I spent $1.40 for a song. google gives me the option to download the song but I want to know if it's legal or not! – Justan Ryan Sep 10 at 6:00

    I'm saying that you have to look at any access-restriction information that they provide. If they actually offer an official download option and this isn't home-brewed downloading, that is permission, and all you need is permission. Payment is irrelevant, permission is what counts. – user6726 Sep 10 at 15:09
