Nope...

I stopped when I heard you could get suied for it.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 1/2/04 - 10:12:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
You can't get sued for legal downloading.

Sometimes I do. A few artist's websites give out free songs.

16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 1/2/04 - 10:20:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes...legally...(shifty eyes)

(^ whoever doesn't watch the simpsons isn't gonna get that ^)

I got it.

It would have been more effective as:

"yEHHHs. LEEEE-gally... ::shifty eyes::"

16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 1/3/04 - 12:50:33 AM EST (GMT-5)
Well, kinda of. I delete my old songs and put the news ones on when I buy a CD. But I usually use illegal software to do it with.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 1/3/04 - 4:43:35 AM EST (GMT-5)
Just run a linux box with a good firewall (custom made by me) and don't use Kazaa and you can't get caught. Use IRC search engines. Get anything you want, quickly.
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 2/2/04 - 8:45:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, illegally only...but I haven't in a while because KaZaA was pissing me off.
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 2/2/04 - 8:48:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I find all my music legally. It's quick and I don't have to have a downloading program. There are tons of songs legally available out there. I've listened to hundreds of thousands of different artists that way.
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 2/2/04 - 8:49:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes I do
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 2/2/04 - 8:52:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
In the past I did until the price of having my PC effected by Kazaa's spyware and viruses became intolerable.
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 2/3/04 - 9:19:40 AM EST (GMT-5)
^KaZaA is ILlegal. This question is asking if you do it legally.
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 2/3/04 - 9:28:42 AM EST (GMT-5)
There's always WinMX...not that I'm sure if it's legal or not to grab music files. I can neither confirm nor deny that I have ever, currently, or will in the future, download, legally or otherwise, any music onto my computer.
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 2/3/04 - 11:55:06 AM EST (GMT-5)
Kazaa also isn't the only peer to peer software.

I download lots. If I like it, I'll buy the album to support the artist. May not agree with the letter of the law, but f**k it. Lets see the RIAA try and extradite me from the UK.

Morally, what I do is fine, nobody loses out, and if the lawyers and industry weren't non-nice individuals of the highest order, it wouldn't be illegal either.

16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 2/5/04 - 6:48:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
314, it's illegal because it violates copyright laws. It's like bootlegging.
16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 2/5/04 - 7:25:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
^ yes. And? Your point being?

If I don't like it, I'll delete it, because it's s**t. I could have listened to it on the radio and found that out.
And I just said, if I like it, I'll buy it.
So what I said was, no-one loses out. The last 3 albums I bought, were on the strength of downloading the albums and listening to them first. I only listen to MP3s, so the albums now sit, unopened on a shelf.
My point is the copyright laws are stupid, and I'm in violation of them although I'm not causing anyone to lose out.

16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 2/5/04 - 7:51:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
kind of confused - after downloading, why exactly do you buy it???

16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 2/5/04 - 8:10:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
Because I want to support the artist, so they can go on and make more cool music.

Just 'cause it's more convenient for me to download it than buy the album, and convert it to MP3's, I don't see any reason not to pay for it.

16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 2/5/04 - 8:43:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
Who do you think you are kidding? Thanks for the laugh.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 4/6/04 - 12:16:50 AM EST (GMT-5)
Paying to down load music is like paying for cinema for adult viewing. A huge waste of money and morally reprehensible.
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 6/26/04 - 4:28:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't pay to download...everyone downloads it illegally.
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 6/27/04 - 6:21:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
EVERYONE, Cd0gX? I guess iPods must be going out of business since noone has ever bought a song...
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 6/27/04 - 6:26:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
I do the same thing as pi - I download songs illegally. If I like the album, I'll buy it. If I don't, I'll delete it. Simple enough.

And yes I have downloaded music legally, I got ram-zet's "queen" from a site with full songs.

15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 10/1/04 - 2:30:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
I illegaly download music i think, but after so long it's public domain, or something if you get it from another country it is very complicated thats why the record companys always drop the suits
