Question about sound for games

I am thinking about learning how to make apps or game salad but how do indie devs get away from ripping sound files off artists or even off the net without copyright issues? Or how do you make ur own sounds unless ur a musician or something?that's the big issue that always is on my mind when I think of even trying to start. I'm not talking about voice actors but about music or for instance click sounds when you select an input in options. Howmwould you even do that?

First off, people only 'get away' with using stolen music because no one's sent them a C&D yet. It's the same thing as all the idiotic 'iMario' style apps, stealing is illegal and just don't do it.

Here's a list of stuff to Google for creating your own audio:
Software synthesizer
MIDI sequencer
DAW (Digital Audio Workstation)
