Who Panicked Like Me?

I had Kazaa until there was a recent report on MTV about them being able to trace you once you make a search. Since the internet is in my name I panicked and rushed to delete the thing.

Now I want soooo bad to download some songs.

Am I a fool or a coward?

how bout both?

just don't share and you should be ok... now if everyone does this, we won't be able to d/l. that's how a kid at my school got shutdown by paramount and expelled for sharing LOTR.

now would be a good time to learn how to use MIRC.

internet relay chat...

http://mirc.co.uk or something... can't remember... go to download.com

anyway, basically you join servers and go to certain rooms/channels to download albums/songs/movies etc. it's kinda like DOS tho.. but it has faster d/l times than kazaa.

Are you guys talking about the whole RIAA incident? IMO, I agree with Cari. There are so many more programs out there. Personally, I think KaZaA is shit. I never use it anymore (it's been over a year) and instead, I go to chatting forums like iMesh that are more reliable because when you download, the person you're sharing from will be online and won't cancel your downloads. Plus there's a bigger chance you'll find rarer/unreleased songs there as well

Go Ai! Go Shinobu! Go Rita! Go Monica! Go Serena! Go Kim! Go Amelie! Go Lindsay! Go Jenn! Go Jelena! Go Mary! Go Conchita! Go Amanda! Go Chanda! Go Elena D! Go Maggie! Go Amy! Go Adriana!

Players I sorely miss.
Dominique Van Roost, Martina Hingis, Gabriela Sabatini, Mary Joe-Ferenandez, Steffi Graf, Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario, Anke Huber, Kimiko Date, Pam Shriver, Naoko Sawamatsu, Brenda Schultz-McCarthy, Sandrine Testud and Julie Halard-Decugis.

Good luck in your post-tennis life

well, I did read they are going to track who is sharing music files and sue them.

in the first place, that's easier said than done. Fist of all it can have legal implicancies, it's hacking into someone's personal computer. It's like to say "I suspect this guy has stolen something mine so I am gonna look into his house to see if he has it", that's not acceptable without a court order, if somebody challenges them legally and it becomes a court action it could be the end for them.

Second, get a firewall, but a hardware one (not bullshit like zonealarm), a router with a build-in firewall would do it.

Third, all they can do is to obtain your IP address, unless they intend to look some other info inside your computer which is illegal. With the IP address they have to ask the ISP and the ISPs don't want to collaborate (remember the Verizon case). Of course the court can order them to do that but at the end, the phone companies are a lot more powerful than the music labels and the legal battle can delay this for years, when it's over the record companies can be history.

the music labels are managing to enrage everyone, the combined IQ of their executives is less than 20, they have angered the people that buy music and the piracy levels have increased rather than decrease, they are desperate and IMO have no clue about what to do, these are desperate measures and I don't think they are going anywhere with them.

I am having the lop thing in my computer and it doesn't go away. it's a spy thing too

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I downloaded all the spy removers from the internet but that didn't work either
