Windows 7: Limewire Shut Down

I'm not justifying pirating, I'm pointing out that loyal customers buy and get crap in return. Are they so blind and cannot see that there is a reason why people pirate.

Also, all of those or any amusing image I run across, I copy it into my stash... Also, the music from video games is usually unavailable for sale, I acquire it to my "collection." Also a very large majority of music that I listen to is not sold.

So...based on that theory...it's ok not to pay you if you are poor at your job, have a bad day, etc?

That's why I use a pay service that allows you to download and pay per song.

itunes, Napster, etc. Pay for only the songs you like, not an album with 2-4 good songs and the rest crap...

No, like I said, I don't justify it. Also, my form of music is not sold, at least a large majority of it.

I love amazon.com mp3 section. Over 2000 free songs, bordering on 3000, and 99 cent songs that you can use for whatever you like.

The kindle rocks, too. I have their app for my android phone, and it's sweet.

Probably my form of music, I don't copyright it nor mass market it.

In theory it SHOULD be since you are getting bits of the file from the entire planet not just one site so you aren't constrained by the bandwidth of the single site.

The idea of torrents is actually very good -- these could and should be used much more often provided security aspects can be managed.

Remember the total CHAOS and server overload when the first OFFICIAL copies of W7 were released.

Had MS enabled Torrents to do the download this would probably have prevented two or three days of total Microsoft embarassement at their lack of foresight in upgrading their servers for what they knew would be a MASSIVE world wide demand.

Security is of course the issue but the technology remains perfectly valid and is an excellent way of managing large down (or up) loads of popular material.

Mm yup, my point exactly.

juat had to be part of this never ending thread. Limewire stinks! Granted their are some things avalible but most of it is fake, viruses, or toolbars ect. I can't beleve how many people I've had to fix their systems because they downloaded a program or such but didn't notice it was only 46kb's( I think that's the average file).
Please split up my 2 cents worth with Corrine.

I have to agree with comment made earlier by jimbo. What about when you lend a CD or DVD to a friend. Isn't that just a different form of pirating? But we do it innocently without any illegal intent. Also, boy I bet I'm going to get some heck over this, what about some of the avatars and pictures in signatures on SevenForums, but again we do that innocently. As was said earlier as well, the government will never stop P2P sharing, which makes it neither right or wrong, well I guess it is wrong from a legal standpoint.

I am not defending nor condemning the practice of P2P sharing. What I'm suggesting is maybe there is a way to compromise. Perhaps if Torrent sites ie: the pirate bay, demonoid etc., were to charge a small fee, and I mean small not $50 a month, with the proceeds going to a split between the Torrent site and the larger portion going to some kind of entertainers fund would put this question to an end. Just my opinion.

That is a good idea about the actual creators of the content, the artist, benefiting from the distribution - unfortunately it's all the others who want a cut too,.

from a $15,99 album the artist gets $1.60 the rest is overhead

one of the reasons why a lot of artists are now releasing content directly to the web
