Let's see. Yeah, I have about 4,000 MP3's on my computer, am I worried? Not one bit! The Kazaa username has nothing to do with anything, because everyone can use the same name, and enter a phony e-mail address. Also, there is no way they can prove that I didn't legally obtain it, nor the fact that I stand to profit off having it. Illeagal my ass. :D

They can have you for distributing copyrighted works. And they can trace that through your IP address, so a phony e-mail address won't save you.

One question, how will they get my IP? And even then, under the DCMA, if no profit is made, monitary or otherwise, no offense has been committed. Case closed. I should download all the popular music just to piss the RIAA off even more. :roll:

It would be insanely simple for them to get your IP. Ant OT mod, Megamod or Admin could get your IP right now. And the DMCA are going after those who don't make money. If they weren't, why would people stop using KaZaa? They're not making any money. Would it be legal to steal sweets from a sweet shop if you gave them away on the street instead of selling them?

I have a feeling that you have no clue what you are talking about. The DMCA was a set of laws passed by Clinton in 1996 I believe, regarding all things internet. And the most influential part now, is the fact that peer to peer sharing with no profit involved is not illeagal. About the IP, I was talking about over Kazaa. No one here would have my real IP anyway. G'day.

I think I mentioned this, but let me stress it.

Of the estimated 1000 subpeonas, only 50 were surveyed for that chart. If you notice how many songs appear only once, that means they only appeared in one of the 50. So, logically, if you have any of that type of music, unshare it. Kazaa would be for the better anyway.

I've got my Opera to identify as IE6, so that explains it. But other sites recognise it as Mozilla 4.0/Opera :?.
