    Heh, think about it like this:

    Kazaa is the Car on your Information Highway.
    In real life, you hardly ask if the Car is illegal, right?, More like if the driver has the Lisence. j/k



    Well, you could ask also if your Kazaa, the software, is Illegal:
    That depends what version you have, if you use KMD, the "Original" version,
    it has Spyware and other shit innit that would make me think how's that legal.
    To fix that you should use the Fixed Versions which are also sort of Illegal as
    Kazaa KMD aint exactly Open Source Software. You're about to be a "criminal" either way.


    To get a working Kazaa that dont fuck you PC so bad is easy, take a look in
    peoples sigs
    and some threads in the Developement section.

    If You need/want to know if Downloading or Uploading is Illegal, that depends on where you at. All these countrys have different laws.
    If you're in USA, you might want to learn more about Proxys and how to atleast
    try to be more anonymous on the net, plus about Firewalls, Routers, etc...
    I say USA as the RIAA is located there, howerver they can reach over seas through "sister-companys", how many of your local record labels ar in some sorta
    "International-Record-Label-Association?" so I dont think nobodys really safe off.
    Ppl get those funny letters in UK too, for example. RIAA/MPAA presses your ISP who presses You.

    I dont think there is a p2p app worth using that has really an "Anonymity-built-in which work 100%",
    ES5 included.
    If there is, there aint big enuff Network thus there aint Files to DL.
    KazaaLite++ the latest versions has some options regarding ppl been able to see your files.
    Its all about how You understand whats going on in your PC and your Internet Connection.

    So im afraid there is more to the bone than just "Is my Kazaa Illegal."



    edit: Yeah, Kazaa might be Legal but the Spyware innit... is that Legal everywhere?
    Spoiler: Show

    In the installation screen of Clean KMD it says that you shouldn't install this program because it's just for educational purpose only.

    Does this make Clean KMD legal?

    Clean KMD is illegal as its a modified version of kazaa and includes the copyrighted materials , but.................. then again [sarcasm] theres lots of people in jail for using hacked versions of kazaa [/sarcasm]
