    Maybe you can help me settle a small friendly bet, a friend of mine put some software on my external hard drive. I never used it or installed it on my computer, the software programs just sat there untouched. One day I decided to look at what it was and some of it seemed questionable, as in it might be pirated, so I went ahead and deleted it all. So my question is, would I still be able to get into trouble if law enforcement looked on my hard drive and found the deleted files of the software and it wound up being pirated? One other question, am I legaly allowed to posess mp3s as long as I'm not sharing them and can I legally transfer my own store bought cds and dvds to mp3 and digital format to use on my mp3 player? Hope you can help me settle this, Thanks

    Bill Gates will personally fling your computer from the highest cliff - rip those mp3's from your paranoid little fingers and make you walk the plank above his empty swimming pool.

    You need to kick back and relax a little - I think you worry way too much!

    I can answer at least one question safely. Yes, you can convert your CDs to MP3s legally. A lot of software (including Apple's iTunes) supports this. It's better to carry something that fits in your pocket, that to carry a sack of CDs for the same amount of music.
