Default Realplayer downloads

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this, sorry if it isn't. I looked and there doesn't appear to be an official Realplayer forum either.

Well basically I search for different music to stream off Realplayer, and the majority of the time it actually downloads the song while it's at it. Often I don't even notice this because the download window is minimized. I wondered what the legality of this is, because I'm not actually trying to download the songs, just to listen. Of course I wouldn't mind keeping the songs but I presume this can't be legal, I just find it strange that it automatically downloads illegally without even prompting.

If anyone could give me advice that would be great, thankyou.
