According to what I remember of the No Electronic Theft act (the only
law that makes not-for-profit copyright infringement a crime) it's only
a crime if the value of that mp3 is greater than $10,000 or if you make
more than ten copies of it.
Otherwise it's civil copyright infringement, not a crime.
