RIAA Suing Kazaa UsersWatch
Did your friend download frequently?? And how many??
We should all start the push for that to happen.
But somebody said they're sueing people 150k for song. That's practically impossible, since they're targetting supreme users. I saw a guy who said he had 5000 files, so when we do the math, that's 750 million dollars that the poor guy would be found guilty of. I've never met a guy with 750k, and I probably never will. So I'm sure it's working a little bit differently. However, I'm wondering how you know you've been sued. Do they send you a message, or call you at home? Bleh. It all sucks.
Just delete Kazaa and fork over some money for a CD why don't you.
The direct link to download the Kazaa Lite 2.4.1 is:
The Official Kazaa Lite website and FAQs':
Another highly secure file sharing program which even encrypts file transmissions is: Filetopia
The web site: http://www.filetopia.org/home.htm
Cheers!, and good luck...
all you have to do is copy and paste the list inside the old list in the: C:\Program Files\Kazaa Lite K++\BannedIPs
Make sure the text file stays the same name.
Well, my opinion is this: file sharing isn't necessary illegal.
File sharing rulez.
mod edit - you got the tags wrong - ollie
Music should be free, or at least cheap.. musicians make millions and rap f'in sucks.
musicians make millions
Surely you realise that isn't true for the majority of musicians?

Under international copyright laws and regulations, kazaa is required by law to provide us with the personal identifying information for each user not excluding ip address, user information, and user search and downloading habits. This forewarning is merely a statement of actions already taken. A master list with said information has been devised and continues to be expanded with users found to have violated copyright laws. Legal action is pending.

Thank You Sir
So for your arguement, Kazaa Lite can never and will never offer any personal information to any agency. There is no "Kazaa Lite" company to speak of, no Sharman Networks releasing a Kazaa with spyware.
Music business is an oxymoron. Something that comes from the human soul from nothing is not for sale. This is the true disease of immorality that capitalist pigs who think anything is for sale spread throughout mankind. Not to mention the price gouging that has been going on between retailers and the industry as well as artists who recieve pennies off of CD sales. That's why they TOUR. That is how they make their money and always has been. So download away, maties. Even the RIAA doesn't have enough money to sue everyone. They may try to make examples but they will never win.
o yes...i play the trumpet and i don't make millions..your theory is not supported
I don't think he was an idiot. After all, it was only $200, would it really be worth it to go to court over $200. I wouldn't. What is the point of selling copying equipment if it is illegal to copy. And the fact that they would only sue people in the States is completely unfair.
If they were really going to sue you, they would contact you by post, and they would have to have your home address to take any action anyway.
People who live outside the US cannot be sued with current international laws.
But you just supported it for me
My main argument is that after buying a £300 jukebox for MP3's it would be stupid for me to say well bugger MP3's for a lark ill go back to using my crappy cumbersome CD player and the ridiculously expensive CD's which seem mainly to be filler material with a few decent tracks. Record companies need to get their heads out of their asses and move with the times MP3's and such are a way forward CD's are begining to become obsolete in a few years companies are going to need to completely re think how they operate in this new era of technology, because at present there are no ways, at least no well publicised ways to actually buy MP3's and so all you can do is steal them and its only possible for people to listen to MP3's on their computer lest they have an MP3 player which I have to say are becoming more popular.
If record companies are losing sales to MP3's on kazaa its because they havent payed attention to the world around and have failed to notice the opportunities MP3's hold and take advantage of them to make up for which they are desperatley suing the would be consumers they failed to notice, for $150,000 dollars a song my dad didnt get that much from his insurance company after a road accident made him comotose for 2 months and made him disabled, so to you arrogant prat before saying there is n injustice to record companies they should realise lifes not fair, complain to god.
You could always think of it this way, The chemicals needed to create CD's attribute to greenhouse gases, after we had the hottest recorded day in Britain the consequences of that are obvious, MP3's and other digital music types are much more efficient there just electronically recorded, and if the record companies actually started selling MP3's they wouldnt even need to pay for CD's themslves.

I'm sorry about your father, however I don't really understand your point in relation to the Kazaa thing? -It may be because I have not read it properly, if so my appologies.
I thought your original point was well made, if indeed it is true, however ending by insultation didn't really strengthen your argument...I'm sorry if I come across as an 'arrogant prat' but am just trying to express my opinion tis all, no offence meant...
