    Does anyone know, on average, how many people are being busted each week? I like the file sharing idea, but I don't want to get busted because some people abuse the privelege.

    i download a fair amount of tunes, but it has also resulted in me buying a lot more CDs than I would have. Tis a great way to decide whether a band is worth buying their CD, or discover new bands you would have just flicked past in the shop!

    When using these P2P "peer to peer" sharing program's, you are/could be opening up a BIG security breech on your PC, I'm an IT manager and I am basically kept in-undated with private job's to sort out PC's that use these sort of P2P program's, as many of them will expose your PC, and could easily give access to file's etc.

    Also many file's that are downloaded contain trojan's etc, so if your going to use these type of prog's then make sure you have an up to date Anti Virus prog etc.

    i think it's alright, need more deets, check it out!!!!

    it's alright, just as long as you do either one of the following:

    first, you use the music for your own purposes, and don't allow ne1 else access!!!

    second, show them respect and give them some credit and go out and buy their album!!! they'll appreciate the love, promise!!!

    let's keep the music going!!!!

    p.s. what's the latest version of the best anti-virus program out there right now, ne1 know?

    thx!!!

    :cool:

    I download songs all the time. If I like the artist....usually I go out and automatically buy the next album they put out. For file sharing...I use clean iMesh. (iMesh without the spyware!!!)

    Buying CD's?

    What is this "buying CD's" concept? I can't say I remember where the local music store IS!

    Hardly anyone goes to music stores anymore... I order them online and/or download the song.

    Some people just burn the cd's from whom ever bought too...

    I used to use p2p programms but I think it's too risky with all the virusses. I can handel them but it's just annoying. I'd rather buy a CD of my fav. artist then to download it with the risk of getting a virus.
