    Kazaa paranoia.

    Discussion started by Evil Dee - Oct 5, 2003

    Someone deleted kazaa from my computer and i was about to download it again when a wave of paranoia struck me. With all the bitching and beefing the recording industry is doing about tracking people through kazaa and whatnot, is there any way they can track the people downloading the system and would they bother?

    Here's the point: Simply having kazaa can't hurt you. You could very
    well use it just to get pictures and other completely legal things. They
    can't get you in trouble for having songs on your computer, because
    you very well may have bought those cd's. The only thing you can get
    in trouble for is having them in your shared folder. So, after you get
    them, put them in a different folder. Problem solved.



    Or, use SLSK or DC++, or KazaA Lite instead of reg. Kazaa.



    *: I know that this sounds bad, because if everyone had this policy,
    there would be no Kazaa anymore. But very few people actually think
    like me, and I'd hate to have someone I know get shafted when it could
    be some retard in California with 2000 songs on her shit.

    move it to another folder, or just set it so you arent uploading anything. thats how they catch you, by uploading from you.

    I dont think people uploading from you could be an offence cause you could have the CD's and put them onto you comp which isn't illegal.

    actually, that is what they are against. They don't like people allowing others to have access to music that they haven't paid for...basically, the RIAA doesn't like people sharing...that's what the whole is about.

    I guess, but when you choose to join one of these file-sharing 'communities' and choose to share media, you are responsible, in the RIAA's eyes.

    It is not illegal to have music on your computer it is illegal to share that said music. Music you download of the net or from other people is coded differently from music you upload on your computer from cds so technically you could still be caught.

    bottom line dont use kazaa it sucks anyways, only share with people you know. so your not sharing with some riaa bot.

    It's not actuallly illegal to have your music on your computer as long as you own a hard copy of said media.

    If you have the proper encoders in whatever player you use to put them
    onto your comp, I don't think the coding of those songs is any different.
    Probably just the quality is different.... like I put all my songs on at 192
    Kb/s but online they're like 64

    Yes, this man definately does know whats up. K++ comes with software you can update daily that blocks thousands upon thousands of known RIAA IP addresses. Other than using a program like mIRC, its the best thing you can do to protect yourself.
