While this is just copying and nothing else, the spoke person for Briffa, Sheena Sheikh claims any such action to be nothing but stealing.

"Sheena Sheikh, a solicitor from intellectual property specialists Briffa, told the BBC that the law is straightforward on such downloading activity.
"It is effectively stealing," she said.
"You are committing an infringement. You're not authorised to download the songs. You don't have permission."""
