Are they MP3's for which you hold a valid licence to distribute? Or are they copyrighted songs that shouldnt be shared around?

Are you sending files via e-mail? If so then there's no way to make it faster. You can always transfer files via Infrared or Bluetooth (check if your Smartphone comes with a File Manager that supports this).

Also, as noted by Disenchanted, you should not tansfer files that are protected by copyright, such as music, movies, etc.

Well, if these are commercial CDs and you have ripped these files yourself, then you shouldn't be distributing. This sharing is considered piracy.

Again, how are you sending these files? What method?

The speed limits are imposed by the Bluetooth implementation. The only thing you can do is to make sure there's no obstruction between the devices, they are closer than 10m and there's no microwave or Wi-Fi access points around the area.

I don't think the RIAA really takes in consideration if is just sharing for fun or profit...
