Are these people really serious or are they just saying it?
go after people who make things available to other people rather than those who just download for themselves.
also does peerguardian work?
i won't believe it till i get a fine. and even then, i use my flatmates computer to download music. so itll be him getting fined. and him getting put on the sex offenders list for all the dodgy porn.
But it will definitely be coming from my bank account.
But I reckon they're targeting the people that upload stuff on oink from promo copies.
but don't share your own stuff you're ok?
but they focus on the people who upload lots of stuff
that because I only download from small indie labels it's unlikely they'll come after me.
I am scum. I justify it to my self by saying that downloading gets their music out there and allows them to tour the world doing what they love, but really I just dont like paying for something when I could have it for free.
i buy more albums because of it, if the radio is not going to play me what i want to hear... also what's the point in buying a lot of bad albums
downloading is fine, (music, not films) and you can technically share your stuff with 3 "friends" but it's his word against everything i have ever found on the topic myself.
Is that still highly illegal because the thing will come out on DVD?
you could definitely fight that case, especially as lost is free to watch on the abc website anyway, plus you dont pay to watch certain tv shows in the first place, you could argue tivo is illegal if it was the case which it most certainly isnt
who are going to get fined.
(I have suspisions that NME leak music, and have for a while.)
But a prosecution is pursued only if someone has put the music online for others, because, if not, then it is impossible to prove the guilt.
Copying your own CDs onto your PC is illegal, but no-one is ever prosecuted for that.
you're allowed to back up anything you own in case of loss or damage. so nerrr.
i read that somewhere...
one copy of everything you own. Also they only really go after people with a static address (apparently0, there the only people they can trace doing heavy up/downloading. On a lighter note did anybody hear about when G.Bush was bragging that he owned an Ipod. When asked what his fav band was to listen to on it he said the Beatles. However you can't legally download any of the Beatles music, so he ripped them which is illegal. Hardly anything compared to the 'war on terror' but still funny
