Wrong! It'd only be legal if you own the original files/CDs.

That is true, but don't you in the least bit feel stupid for making a company loose £££? The more £££ they lose, the quicker they will become kaput, and it will be your fault. LMAO I bet you thought 'Hey, i've found a loophole, i'm gonna post it in Deals and get a lot heat, hehehe'. Wrong. You will be losing a number of companies a lot of money.

picked the wrong website

i had a question about traffic sharing, but i found my answer lol. otherwise you coulda came in handy.

I believe it is a civil offence?

Probably not legal but you are sure less likely to be sued.

Complete and utter tosh.

The site itself is not illegal at all. Its an online file storage site that does not share in any way members files.

On the other hand, you have members of the site who DO upload copyrighted files and then post the links elsewhere. This act may be illegal, and also downloading the files if they arent your own, but the site itself is not illegal. so its the members who are committing illegal acts, not the site.

:thumbsup:

While the boundaries of legality regarding several things could be stretched, it is pretty rigid concerning file sharing:
it is illegal to distribute copyrighted material!

While you may not get caught downloading material off Rapidshare [as most links are to encrypted rar files], it is WRONG, and you are breaking copyright laws.

Permit me to quote a verse from a holy Book [I happen to read a lot]: All things are permissible, but not all things are helpful . All things may be legitimate, but not all things are constructive [to character] and edifying.

So, it comes down to your ethics. I get all my apps off RS or torrent sites; I only buy music if I can't find what I'm looking for on RS and in turn upload it. :santa:
But, it's wrong and illegal.

Its a civil offence if you download.
If you upload its a criminal offence.

I stopped using torrents last year and opened a rapidhare account, so much better.

Rapidshare and warez-bb is the way to go. listen to all you self righteous types going on about legalities. Get a grip, if you could save a fiver from selling your ganny i bet you would.

You'd save on bills by tapping your neighbor's electricity. Would you do it?

This isn't about saving, it's about wrong/right.
It's pointless justifying piracy... just admit it's wrong and move on!!

can't really be bothered to be honest, if you can't see it then it's not worth bothering.

I'll just carry on downloading with my rapidshare account safe in the knowledge i'm not adding to my neighbours electric bill

I assumed you were being a smart-ass when you pointed out that selling one's granny is not the same as tapping your neighbor's electricity...

In both cases you're gaining what you should be paying for and both acts are illegal, whether you justify it differently to yourself doesn't really mean anything.

The "piracy supports terrorism" thing actually has some validity to it. Back in the 90s and the 80s, the IRA was largely funded by gangs selling pirate videos and CDs at market stalls across Ireland and Britain. In modern terms though, well, yeah. Still, it's nice to think there's maybe an Al Qaeda terrorist cell somewhere in the world, tasked with bringing down Western society and destroying its culture of recorded entertainment by maintaining really, really high seed ratios, isn't it?

just thinking that some folks make such a fuss about 'frauding the authorities' but would be prepared to sell a family member to the taliban instead.

Well from that.. you'd be wrong. I own original copies of all he D12 albums, Eminem, Dr.Dre etc.. I buy albums if they deserve to be bought, and if they deserve there 'fame'. For example: i bought 50 cents first few cds but wouldnt dream of forking out for his new stuff. Disgrace to hip hop.

Noticed there are about 50/50 on for and against downloading music.

Isnt easy for the government or law to get somone for doing it though, anyone remember that russian website?
