I have to admit i tend to prefer buying music than downloading it although with my friend going on holyday soon the radio show is going to need a new source of music I may have to obtain more may turn to some downloads.

I remember back a few years ago my brother was downloading lots of Stargate episodes.  And we got an email from our ISP saying MGM wanted our personal info because they had caught us downloading copywritten content. Our ISP said no to them and said that they knew we wouldn't download illegal content and that it must have been someone visiting us who used our computer to do it, and that we should moniter how our guests use the computer. Nothing more was ever heard about it.

And it's not even some local ISP where they might actually know us, it's a huge company. Other people I know have also gotten similar emails.

What he means to say is: when you're breaking the law, don't record/tape/write/post a topic about it. Just deal with it, quietly, in the manner that'll download the least spyware onto your computer/get you arrested least. But Danzik is right.

Also, WINKING DOES NOT HELP.

I used BearShare before the idiots who made it tangled spyware into everything. Then I changed to LimeWire. I use only it for songs, because if it's bigger than a few megabytes, then I might as well just use Torrents.

Technically,Limewire isn't illegal. It's sharing files between two sources with no money transactions.

Limewire Pro is illegal I think. regular Limewire isn't.

What? No full control over children? You do realize that some of us have particular plans for those children.

Something tells me that its more "accepted" to download using bittorrent in Sweden then in other countries... I mean, almost everyone do it, and the risk of getting caught is so extremely small, I think they've caught nothing more then 5 persons in the last 2 years... And I also heard about some law that they are working with that will make it even harder for the police to track downloaders. We even have a quite popular Piratpartiet (The pirate party). Some of the bigger parties are also for leagalising downloading, but they want to solve it in another way, like having a downloading lisence. I always use bittorrent, its much safer and way more reliable.

Hypothetically  ;D I'd go with Limewire, although some others are hypothetically good.

I HYPOTHETICALLY use limewire, and I would use The Pirate Bay if they're download articles were written better. I'm scared to download from that site.

The programs are all legal. Now, if you dload/upload something that has a copyright on it...that's illegal.

Not for ares. That's because you can't burn the stuff.
