    what ever happened with that shit? I havent heard anything lately. When the music industry started filing lawsuits against downloaders i started buying my music. Is this law still being enforced? Is there a good way to download music and not get caught up? Do people still Download music? I used to spend hours a week on Napster, it was fun and i discovered alot of good hip hop. Plus, there are CDs out there that i want but cant get.

    Fuck them, the best way to protect yourself from any trouble is to make sure your p2p software is kept up to date..... most pieces of software you download have an ip 'blocklist' which is basically a list of servers used by music companys and other ip addresses used by other agencys...... so if you keep this list updated then there is less of a chance of a comeback......
    also, dont leave your pc connected to these networks for longer then you have to

    how do you find out what is RIAA protected and what isnt. I have no desire to download any Metallica. Mostly Jazz, Rare MF Doom & KMD, maybe Drum and Bass Sets and other underground hip hop. Thats the Idea.....i want to be able to browse and find some new shit that i like. I dont mind paying for my music. I just want to sample a bit before i drop 20 on a compact disc.

    So all the people downloading can all be prosecuted. Well thats going to be a battle they cant win. Just like graffiti its always going to be around and its always going to continue.

    Good looks Hopeizm, So basically what your saying is that you want to use the most recent software. Programs are modified and rereleased in order to update their p2p blocklist and protect their users. An outdated program may not be blocking the right shit or enough shit leaving you vulnerable.
    Whats a good program then?
    Just for clarity... Do you have to manually update the block list or do you just upload the new version when it becomes available that has the list built in already?
