Thread: Newsgroups...

  1. #1
    i've been a newgroup user for quite some time now, first with my 56k freeserve account and now with my 512k pipex adsl account
    my 'question' is simple - how can isp's offer 'free' copyrighted content on their own servers?
    is it safe to download content from newsgroups, has anyone ever been charged for doing so?

    thanks in advance

    I do not think that the ISPs enforce the content that is being exchanged on newsgroup servers, but they do have the ability to shut them down, if they feel it is a necessity.
