Can an online UPC Generator (Barcode Gen.) be used as a legit way of getting a UPC code?

In order to sell music online, you need a UPC code that, usually, you need to pay for. But I've found websites that generate UPC codes for free; can I use these codes to sell my music via distributors to iTunes? Is this possible, or are these randomly generated UPC codes just for show?

No. UPCs are assigned to manufacturers and producers after applying for a range of numbers. Nobody is stopping you from printing codes. However, if you try selling things using another company's range of numbers, expect trouble to follow you.
