Music, Videos and More

Trying to stay up-to-date on the availability of music and video resources online and otherwise is pretty much impossible. The list of websites and resources below is just a jumping-off point. Remember, Google (or insert your favorite search engine name here) is your friend. Looking for something? Search the Web for it, it is probably out there! Whatever you do, always try to be a "legal eagle." The Recording Industry Association of America®, RIAA, and/or the the Motion Picture Association of America, MPAA, may be watching. Seriously.

UNT takes a hard stance against the illegal sharing of copyright protected material, for more information please read UNT's Approach to Addressing Copyright Infringement.

The RIAA has set up this page containing "some of the more popular legal online music sources" to help you access music online legally.
