    First off you coulda ommitted where you've gotten it from, and the post would've been fine.

    And secondly, p2p *is* legal, it's what it's mainly used for that isn't. Meaning that, lister, you shouldnt jump to conclusions about what the video file is. P2P can be used for sharing linux distros, critical updates, freeware etc. Not to mention videos that are free.

    Ok, granted, the AVI could be perfectly legit, and that p2p isn't illegal; nevertheless, the rules clearly state that TSG doesn't support answering questions on p2p software.

    By mentioning it, he negated any help he may have received to his problem; as TSG can only assume(guilty until proved innocent :eek: ) that the AVI was something that infringed on the owner's copyright.
