Erm, I stopped downloading music a bit back because the government is tracking people down...

I wouldn't take the risk mate. If I were you, I'd make a Napster account (The new pay for one). Although you have to pay for it, you can get any CD for under $10 or single songs for 99 cents each. Otherwise, you have the risk of paying 1000's of $$$ more in Federal Fines

Yea I use Limewire, ( www.limewire.com ) and theres no spyware, adware, etc. It has really fast searches and downloads

And about the tracking down thing... I can guarantee that the government would never do that. Do u know how many people use these programs??? it would be impossible to track down EVERY user. The people who are getting charged that you hear about are people who run these kinds of programs or make thousands of songs availible for download to users, these people are the big "threats" i guess you could say to online music piracy. They don't have the time nor the resources to track individial users trading a few songs even a few hundred.

I know, not every user, but they ARE tracking individual people. People who generally on average download several songs every day, but they are tracking them. Most people are safe, but there is the risk. Also, if you download the stuff for free, the bands etc don't get the money and don't make new albums etc...

Call me a theft, but I use Limewire, and it is alot better then Kazaa, no pop up ads or spyware. Its a little harder to use, but its defiantly worth it.

How do you get Kazaa lite? My friends have it, but is it just an older version or do you download it somewhere else?

first of all, kazaa lite charges now so you have to get the installation file from someone. Second of all, after the "inappropriate" threads were deleted, I'm not sure why the talk of illegal file sharing is being allowed.
I'd also like to point out that the RIAA is in fact trying to stop illegal file sharing. Once they track down your internet service provider, however, they are not REQUIRED to give them your contact information. Also, while a few mp3 sharers are getting in trouble, it is mostly video files that will get you caught. When a new movie is released they seem to check for that to find illegal file sharers. I'm not going to give any more advice than this, as my posts get deleted if i simply mention alcohol.

I use Limewire, best thing yet since napster was free. I heard there was one p2p program that you could download whole cd's at a time for free. anybody know what it is. If your going to pay for your downloads use itunes, it rocks.

i use kazaa lite and i believe my mom got it from kazaa.com or w/e the site is--but she did pay for it...i think she paid 20 or 30 dollars for lifetime use...it doesnt charge u for each item downloaded. But kazaa sucks cuz there arent enough sources and i guess this part could be true for any site: u get the songs with that screeching sound in the middle of it--idk if others hav it but kazaa does and its soo annoying!

Yeah, Kazaa (Regular Version mind you) gave me nightmares. My comp was flooded with spyware and junk. I hear that Kazaa lite actually IS pretty good though.

Ya if you have a few mp3s they really dont care.. in fact a lot of the mp3s i have on my computer i actually own the CD cause i just ripped it onto my computer (it's easier to listen to a song or 2 without goin upstairs and grabbin the CD every time). Plus I heard as long as you don't share your mp3s they won't do anything to you so I don't share mp3s.

I also heard they really care about the movie file sharing. Kazaa Lite rocks!
