On Ares you get video and music plus it is legal.
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.

Are you willing to test that out in front of a court? I ask, because I have several very free programs which will allow you to take that stuff you downloaded and copy/burn it and I don't think saying "oh but the program won't allow you to burn it" will get you off the hook - especially if you've downloaded something in violation of distribution law.

I have 3 movies and also, I'm in britain, so american law won't work on us. And I have tried. It won't let you.

We have laws which prohibit that stuff too. And you're forgetting two things called international law and extradition.

Your inability to burn it doesn't make something legal if it's still unauthorised distribution.

No, you have to provide me with the sources. Telling someone "look it up" does not prove your point.

I don't see anything that supports your point at all.

In fact, following one of the links off that page throws up an advisory from the programmers themselves, saying:

I get the impression you don't know what you're talking about, since that doesn't mean that this:

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

Is right.

You're making even less sense than usual. I don't understand; can you explain what you're trying to say?

Quote from: http://aresgalaxy.sourceforge.net/p2prisks.htm
Q: Is Ares P2P illegal?
R: No. File sharing applications, in and of themselves, are not illegal; they are simply technologies that enable the sharing of computer files. However, as with many technologies, people can use file sharing applications in ways that are legal or illegal.

Copyright Infringement
Files containing copyrighted works, such as popular games, movies, music, and software, may be uploaded and downloaded from the Internet using applications such as Ares P2P without proper authorization. Such actions can be violations of copyright laws and subject the user to criminal and civil penalties.
Title 17 of the U.S. Code includes stiff penalties for copyright infringement, including significant fines and in severe cases even jail sentences. All P2P users are urged to respect copyright laws and to learn more about them.

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