    I've stopped usuing P2P programs a while ago, not cos of the moraility, but purly P2P will do more harm than good to your PC.

    So this is the question. (hypothethically)

    I've good out and bought an iPOD, or MP3 player.

    I have a shed load of music on vinal, CD (which I have bought) and a few (20 or so) MP3's off Kazahh.

    SO I want to get the latest Britney album, Tom Jones back catalougue or J.S Bach's "Air on a G string". What options do I have if I DONT have the original tracks to copy myself to MP3.

    Can I buy them legally from somewhere, do HMV, K-MART, or a website have these, that I can buy ????

    I've never seen it, so can I suggest these new bits of kit rely on you making a backup/copy your existing music or you have to go the illegal way and P2P them.

    so... can I buy an MP3 music track legally and from where

    cheeeeers

    ROFL, File-Sharing causing more damage than good? Thats only if your out there trying to get some of the Real Illegal S**t such as child porn. And yes there are other .exe files that will surprise you if you don't run a virus checker on them but other than that it doesn't cause more harm than good. Now yes if you are one of those that choose to get file-sharing programs such as the regular Kazaa instead of kazaa lite then your going to get adware. I will post a list of all such peer 2 peer programs but just to name a few right off the bat.

    Imesh
    Kazaa

    These are the worst but there are programs like as kazaa lite that do the same for Imesh.(remove all adware/spyware)

    The best filesharing programs still remains to be Shareaza which has no adware or spyware and connects you to several networks.

    Including Gnu 1 and 2, edonkey and supports bittorent.

    LoL, let them go for it then, I was told that my link was OK by the owner of these forums then it was countered by another admin. I still have not heard anything from the owner in response to the admins oppinion. So until I hear from him im going to continue posting. And Ban is such a strong word, you really cant ban anyone now can you. Even if my Ip gets blocked, it can easily be changed.

    Then you would probably become another hex(wonder if hes still lurking around...)...and if you were to search around you'd realize how bad that would be.
