RIAA Suing Kazaa UsersWatch
When I think about how the RIAA is suing 12 year olds, I think about how lame they really are. They are targeting people without money enough to get themselves good lawyers. Our people over here have gotten suit-crazy, and it's sad.
Kazaa has so much spyware in their program it isn't even funny. I downloaded the newest version of Kazaa, and my Adaware told me it had then found about 26 instances of spyware. I deleted them, and Kazaa wouldn't work anymore. So I deleted whatever parts of kazaa I could find, because the uninstaller wouldn't work either...
Wonder what website or email address or computer that spyware reports to and what it reports...
I would try downloading kazaa lite, but I don't want just any computer connecting to my computer..., but anyway...
All the recording industry is doing is picking on people with much smaller finances than theirs...
When you download music, you are merely copying from whatever site you got that music from. You did not steal anything. To steal is to take something away with the intention of never giving it back to rightful owner. Copying is not stealing.
If anything, it is the sites and file sharers which should be targeted--not the users merely downloading the music. The RIAA's strategy is from backwards thinking. They think there are many more music-sharing websites out there than there are file-sharing people, so they are thinking about suing the least amount of victims. But there are more file-sharers than there ever will be music-sharing websites. So, if anything, the RIAA is losing money everytime it sues someone.
Take into account the amount of money it takes to:
Monitor Kazaa network connections for users downloading music
Monitor music-sharing websites for IPs of computers downloading music
Issuing subpeonas(sp?) to out-of-state ISPs ordering them to hand over users' IP information
Having lawyers all the time
Possibly illegally monitoring downloads from users' computers by the employment of spyware
Making a long list of victims to sue
Setting up trials, court dates, etc.
Possible future lawsuit of RIAA from the Supreme Court
List goes on and on...
Now look at the money they're getting from the users they sue...not very much compared to what they spend every day...Maybe getting a little from the government here and there...
That's my brain cell limit usage for this website today.
Here's How To Avoid Getting Caught By The SONY Police Or Anyone Else Who Is Trying To Catch You And Sue You For Using Kazaa. These Steps Are Super Easy, So Follow Them And You Can Almost Guarentee Yourself That You Will Not Get Caught. It Has Worked For Me So Far And I'm going On Three Years Strong.
Steps To Not Get Caught And Sued:
1) Obtain a version of Kazaa Lite
*Go Here - It's The Official Site: http://www.kazaalite.tk/
2) Install It In Your Hard Drive
*Overwrite Your Original Kazaa Directories And Such -
NOTE: No Old Downloads That You Have Pending Will Carry
Over, So Make Sure You Get All Those Taken Care Of
(Or Not, Just To Play It Safe).
3) Set Up Your Shared Folder
* Make Sure That The Only Folder You Are Sharing Is In
Fact Your 'My Shared Folder' So That When You Are
Connected To The Network, That Is The Only Folder
You Could Possibly Have Scanned By Someone.
4) Be Smart When You Download
* I'm Sure I'm Not Telling You New News, But Whenever
A Download Finishes, Go Into Your 'My Shared Folder'
And Remove Your Files And Place Them In Another
Folder That Is Far Away From Your 'My Shared Folder'
(This Keeps Scanners From Ever Seeing What You
Have Downloaded So That You Cannot Be Caught
5) Repeat Step 4 As Long As You Download Media From Kazaa
* There Is Nothing The Government Loves Beter, Than
To Find A Person Who Is Not Smart Enough To Attempt
To Cover Their Tracks When They Try To Steal/Share
I Hope This Helps Out Those Of You Who Are Affraid Of Losing Your Downloading Privillages As A Result Of Being Scared Of Being Convicted For Stealing/Breaking The Law. I Think The World Of Sharing Is The Way To Go Because No Matter What, It Is Free And It Will Continue Whether It Is Out In The Open Or It Is Conducted In The Underground. Vive La Musica Liberdad!!!!
Uve got ur music and they think thats one less person conning them out of 30p (per song) they can sue 100,00 per song, they wouldnt make that selling it legally, so they havent lost 100,000 a song.
Were all happy
so atrac files on your hdd etc, are fine?
well atrac is a sony indorsed product so if sony sued me well thed being sueing thin air as all my media is on a sony minidisc player.
oh yeah how much modification can music take before it is no longer what it was
its a strange comment meaning if a mp3 has a diffrent sound frequency or level of base then to the cd version is it still clasified as a clone.
really the smaller details are what you guys are gonna want to play about with like encoding music into a diffrent format that can only played in certain players as long as the music has been decoded from its un hearable format.
this would mean tha actual file could not be ilegal as it did not create an ilegal sound ???
but needed to decoded into a sound that ment something.
really guys if your gonna play with the big boys you gotta be ruthless
here are a couple fo reasons why CD sales have decline. hmmmmm....let me think.....maybe it is because most of the songs being released these days are SHEIT!
some of these things expressed after this are my opinion so please feel free to comment as they are not facts....
take for example. The newest song from Junior senior, the "we gotta rock, rock, rock rocking the beat, we gotta beep beep......" i thought it was a catchy song so i downlaoded it put it on my minidisc then played it for about a day and realised how sheit it was and threw it out of my machine. Why should i waste £3.99 on that single if the song is SHEIT!
the main reason in CD sale decline is that if you mass manufacture bands who produce a load of crap, and force me to pay money for it, i might as well as go to the toilet a produce something...
the RIAA should take the money stolen from KAZAA users and use it to produce some good music for once...
europeans wont get hit with this for a while yet, because P2P is far more active in the US. nonetheless, in order to legally protect themselves, must personal users will stop sharing files and rely on braver souls. unfortunately, this means that a handful of dedicated people will become the only source of shared music and this will quickly manifest into the FTP scenario, whereby passwords, fees and lengthy downloads are the norm.
The UK may never get hit by it.
it will, but not for a while.
kazaa seems to still be working perfectly well; me and all my friends still use it unashamedly
