    With the offices and homes of the Kazaa owners raided on Feb 6, 2004. the Copyright officers could be monitoring your downloads right now.

    Even though they say "This is not about individuals; this is about the big fish," Where do they set the Big Fish limit at? 10 songs? 100? 1000? 10,000? What about those downloading software?

    Think hard before using the K family of p2p. Do cops really let what they concider illegal activity to continue unless they are setting up a sting to bust even more people? Do you want your IP/name added to the list?

    Your call people, use it and run the risk? Or find another way of downloading your songs? Use a little common sense and good luck if you continue to download as the next download might bump you into the Big Fish pond.

    Your could even try to do something people have forgotten all about, one sure way to remain legal & obtain all the songs you want - go out and buy the CD.

    I agree locustfurnace. How long will it be before the use of all p2p software becomes illegal if all it seems to be mainly used for is trading Copyrighted material?

    Buy and enjoy without worrying that the next knock on your door will be the boys in blue with a search warrent to seaze your computer and all your CDs.

    I've tryed to let people on here know the risk they run but I'm not Jimmy the Cricket so do as you like but to any who do get that little knock remember

    YOU WAS WARNED!

    KAZAA IS DEAD IT JUST HASN'T LAID DOWN YET.

    And so ends my last attempt to warn the users of OV about Kazaa.

    I am still using Kazaa, but I would like to use a program that's a "Club Privé", but I don't know how to use it, it's too complicated.
    It's all about sharing Ftp files and It's rare that a man in blue sues you with this program.
    Here's the official site, give it a try, and if you understand it tell me how to use it:

    rare but does happen or rare because you havent heard much of it happening, , PUN has stated the out come of what can happen, is this a plea for advice and help or is this just another way of bringing kazaa back to the top of the list as you have done so many times already.. perhaps the boys in blue may silence you one of these days and we would no longer have to put up with this subject.

    This is just ridiculous... anyone who thinks their front door is going to be kicked down because they're sharing a few songs or videos online is a paranoid freak.
    Some of us are careful and use dc++

    When you have enough to b sued into bancruptcy for my 3000+ songs and 500 odd videos and tv shows. Using Kazaa is a bad call in general. You get what you deserve for using such an open network.


    And by the way, moderator, www.slashdot.org -is not- a news site. Don't refrence it as such. It is a site discussing news that affects geeks and such, but it is in no way an actual news outlet.

    Uh... you'll always be able to use that software. Learn a thing or two about the law. You're in the clear as the laws currently stand if you don't share files. So... a hint.

    I know I say it was my final post BUT time for you to learn something about the law. Igorance is no excuse. You say don't "share" files. In some areas sharing refers to the uploading OR downloading of Copyright materal. But if I go by your logic then the downloading is OK.

    Another news flash, laws change everyday.

    A law today could be changed by midnight tonight. By 12:01 they could be gathering evidence. By 9 am they could get a search warrent. By 9:15 they could be at your house.

    This is just ridiculous... anyone who thinks their front door is going to be kicked down because they're sharing a few songs or videos online is a paranoid freak.
    Tell that to the single mother on welfare I heard about on the news who was fined $5000 for allowing her kids to download "a few songs"

    But the dime store lawyers know best. Everyone thinks they have a smarter way to break the law.

    NEWSFLASH: Big Brother is a reality NOT a paranoid delusion.

    Your not in the clear if your downloading copyrighted works. Check the laws yourself before you decide to inform others. Consider this, you did not steal the car you merely were in possesion of the stolen vehicle.
    You dont have to be sharing the files, just downloading them you can be held accountable, since you did not pay for those songs/files.

    Right now they are seeking out those who host/share files, since they are the most visible, once they clear that up, i am sure it wont be long before they spend more effort pursuing those who are downloading copyrighted files.

    Is it possible for p2p app&#39;s to become illegal? YES it is. at the present time, cracks, and keygens are illegal to merely be in possesion of. also any program which can crack encrypted works is viewed under the DMCA to be illegal. This is why many DVD coping software titles are illegal. this is why DeCSS is illegal.

    And NEWSGROUPS are not really covering news, but for some reason they are still referred to as NEWSGROUPS.
    News is news, not matter what the outlet is.
