Thread: People Being Tracked Down With Lawsuits

  1. #1
    hey, i haven't been here for a while so i don't know if this has been discussed yet or not...but i recently saw in the newspaper that some guy in fresno, ca. recently got arrested and received lawsuits from the music industry for downloading music off of kazaa. I don't know how this works, but supposedly they are starting this program to "scare off" or warn illegal downloaders (like me ) from downloading mp3s.....i guess with the war and budget loss and all, they are trying to take money from people in any way possible..i have dsl, so i'm not sure if they would be able to get to me in time cuz it only takes me like 30 seconds to download a song...but anyways, i have heard a lot of people talk about this around my area, and i was wondering....should i REALLY be concerned or worried about downloading music from kazaa lite now? or is it just some bullshit that won't really happen to me??!?/ or does the new kazaa lite version block them from tracking people down or something? how does this work?

    it is possible for you to be the target of a suit, but the chances are hundreds of thousands to one. Your connection and download speed/time have no say on wether you will be charged or not. Hope that helps.

    They will probably target people who have the most copyrighted material on their computers. Unless you have 10,000+ files don&#39;t worry about it.

    Yeah I feel so bad for them as they ride around in Bentley&#39;s and BMW&#39;s and live in million dollar mansion&#39;s. Tight asses just want to squeeze every dime they can from each and every one of us

    There will also be public service announcements during movie previews and on TV. Though, if you are worried about getting caught, don&#39;t participate. Personally, I wouldn&#39;t be caught dead using fasttrack now. It about time we started to move on to another service, until Klite starts using anonymous public proxies to hide people&#39;s IP addresses.
