i've barely downloaded music lately. not because of riaa, but because they're either corrupted or erroneous. i like taking risks and use kazaa. plain and simple kazaa. but what i do download the most are movies. and tmd is law protected, so i have no fear for that either. now, as much as the riaa try to fight file-swapping networks, they will still surface one way or another. it's something they can't stop since the people like free stuff. that's what this is all about. money. loss of money means loss of companies and industries.

so... in conclusion: hell with riaa, freedom all the way! :P

I have for a long time thought the RIAA would do much better by running Kazaa (and other P2P systems) servers with junk files on them. They could easily poison the who system by destributing junk files. People are much more apt to stop using these services if they keep getting bad files than out of fear of the RIAA. :)

I use Kazaa Lite K++ for porn and general content. Bittorent for big files like programs and movies. And soulseek for music since I download mostly electronic music which is not the top40 stuff.

eMule doesn't work me... I don't know why. It just bloody doesn't.

Modern filesharing programs ( Bittorrent ) distribute files that contain the MD5s ( or some other hashinig function ) of every few megs of the download.

( In BT, the hash an intrinsic part of the .torrent download )

Personally I pay for all my software, so I really couldn't care less either way =)

Yes, but most people don't use these new systems. The RIAA isn't generally targeting them either, so it doesn't matter yet. They would have to come up with something else for these new services. I was just saying that it would be easier to poison the services they are now targeting than use these legal scare tactics. :)

I used to use Kazaa, but got tired of it because I have SBC dial-up Internet that goes on average, 26.6k.

You don't have the final release of XP SP2 ;)
SP2 adds in a "security feature" that stops exe files from being edited in memory. Because this is the way K-Lite works, it wont :)

For movies, I subscribe to a local (Korean) online content provider which is like a dime a dozen (very cheap). For music, as I'm not so much of a fan of Britney as I am with Level42 (ie. sucker for lost and outdated music), I use Tesla because it allows me to go through the our firewalls and proxies with ease. =)

Else I will just :
1) make up a wishlist of 200+/- mp3 songs I want,
2) send it to a Greenhills shop in the Philippines,
3) pay $2.50,
4) wait 1 week,
5) pick up that brand new flashy CD complete with decalled cover from the mail.
How hard can that be? =)

I use Imesh for audio files and sometimes softwares...

For games and movies I use other softwares, but mostly Emule... Although it's a very slow program, it downloads quality files which I can trust.

Kazaa is full of viruses, and I prefer Katza (my cat...Yay!).

what RIAA have done so far is to issue CIVIL lawsuits against those people sharing #000s of mp3s most of which (as far as i know) have been settled of out court for $##000s
none of the 'convicted' sharers in the pepsi advert (shown in america) have gone to gaol or recieved criminal/federal punishment,
