    Has anyone used the legal version of kazaa that is $20 and if you have how is it, is it worth the money.

    No, you'll do better getting the legal version of Napster. Even though it says that is legal and even though you have to pay a fee, Kazaa is still up to its old wicked ways.

    No, its for music only. If you can find a site that you can legally download software and movies from, please let me know.

    Spy ware. I tried to use kazaa, legally, but was never able to download any music from it. They even had me download a different version of it. Still no luck. During my regular run of spybot I came across a number of baddies that were tracked directly back to kazaa. I uninstalled it and chalked the money lost to a bad experience. As time goes by you'll surely get responses from other members.

    The $20 version of kazaa has nothing to do with legality. Supposedly, its for buying a spyware-free version of the software. No matter what software you buy, its still illegal to pirate music, movies, and games. Sorry.

    If you aren't paying for the music/movies, its probably illegal.
    http://movielink.com
    http://itunes.com
    Try those two
    Theres also a few others for music, such as Napster 2.0 and MusicMatch.

    I've heard that Napster 2.0 is the best software to download LEGAL music from. You have to pay a montly fee but I would say it is probably worth it. No experience with Napster 2.0 though.

    On Napster, can you burn your tracks without having to pay for it?

    To dude189, thanks for the great link. I've seen other links like this but they all required broadband connections.

    To bobbydrza, once you legally download music from Napster you can burn it to a cd without having to pay an additional fee. I use Musicmatch to burn my cd's. Musicmatch allows you to legally download music from their site for a fee as well but their catalog is not as large as Napster.
