I used to have Kazaa. I didnt wanna get sued... anyone get sued becuz of kazaa

I haven't and I don't think they've began sueing yet. Too much mess. There's like 70 million worldwide Kazaa users? Just a guess of course, probably way off. :P

I don't use Kazaa currently.

People who use KaZaA are too stupid to at least use an alternative program that doesnt let the RIAA see a list of their files. Plus they put cydoor on their system as well. =\

Anyways, P2P isnt all bad, it has good uses, but of course anything that can be taken freely and made good in this world will be corrupted by stupid, greedy people. Always. Plus it's where most teenagers get their porn as well, KaZaA doesn't take your age. I think they should charge 1c for KaZaA, so an adult has to pay for it and they would know their kids have free access to all kinds of porn and dirt. =\
No, I haven't been sued.

So, are you calling me stupid, Kairi??? ^_~ Just kidding. Yeah, I've been using KaZaA for probably three years now to download my music and video clips, etc. It gets on my nerves, though, because of the dumb pop-up ads that I constantly have to click out of since I have the "free" version. *sigh* Always a gimmick. Actually, I don't think they would sue the people using KaZaA, but the government and music artists would sue the founders of the company--much like they did with Napster.

Because the music I like costs $50 a CD to import unless I buy a stinky bootleg. =P

i dont support piracy anymore (except roms but i have the games i download). i used to. but then i heard of all the people losing work... then i thought about all their kids... livin on the streets... not fair... how would the REAL imakuni? think about me downloading his music(tho i never did) ...

D'oh Orange beat me to it:P.
Especially for a person like me that enjoys vgm (videogame music) and anime soundtracks, those gems tend run upwards of 40 dollars or more (at least!) Ripoff, I know. But since I do enjoy it sooo much I do go out to the legit websites and actually buy their expensive cds, eventually. But I do it not out of fear of the RIAA (or whatever they call themselves now) but rather I do it out of respect. Its one of few ways I can try to support the artists without completely breaking my bank ; _ ;.

The other more sinister reason people pirate music is to make... $$$. But I think you all know that.

You cant be sued by getting Video Game music, or Jpop for that matter. They only get people who upload files they are after, which are the ones like *insert whatever populated licensed by record singers thy have nowadays*

Downloading free mp3s illegally is a sin.

February 12th, 2004, 01:11 PM
I completely forgot to answer the thread's original question.. No, I stopped using Kazza ages ago. The type of music I use to enjoy downloading became too scarce over time so I just dumped the program all together and moved on. Now I use ftp's and bittorrents to share what I have.

They only get people who upload files they are after, which are the ones like *insert whatever populated licensed by record singers thy have nowadays*Yeah I know, but my friends still accuse me of pirating music (in a joking kind of sense.) Since stealing music is of course stealing music *sigh.* I can't really argue against that.

Kairi
February 12th, 2004, 01:13 PM
Of course, Im just saying the RIAA only cares about their labels and their $, not their customers or people who like music besides theirs. I do use KaZaA Lite to get subtitled anim however, about 12 GB worth.

February 12th, 2004, 01:16 PM
I used to sell cds to friends when kazaa was legal. but they only had songs you cant get on cds (concert only songs and junk...) also kazaa is good for those who cant put songs on their comp cuz they dont have a cd drive... but then again its illegal

I'm not sure if you directed that question towards me but I'll answer ya anyway:P.

Why? I said it earlier and I'll say it again. Its not cheap! We wonder why this type of music isn't around in other countries as much as it should be, you might see it at some game stores here and there but that's it. The only real way to get it is to:
A) Ask a friend in Japan to mail it to you or go there yourself (good luck) and look for it there.
B) Look online. I can't really recommend ebay since most vgm/anime soundtracks are mostly bootleg copies. But GameMusic.com has a great selection at moderate prices, but hey at least they're legit and reliable.

I would just wait and save my money and get the actual cds everytime but why do that when I can "test" out the music first to see if I like it? It'd be an awful waste of money to buy a imported cd only to find out I just liked one or two tracks out of the entire cd. Plus, I'm not rich. Money is hard to come by these days:P.

Meh.. I hope I got my point across, lol.

I downloaded Kazaa and I love downloading all my songs.

I don't like buying em mostly, first I watse money, second, the rest of the music on the album is crappy =P

But I don't do piracy, if I had a faster computer, I would have done this ages ago XD j/k

Besides, they can't sue me. There are too many people using that program. Its not like we can't download music just for one's pleasure.

I use Kazaa Lite to download... er... everything. o.o; If I hear a song I like on the radio and want to hear more of, I'll download it. If I like a single song from an anime series or from a video game, I'll download it. The same goes for fansubbed anime... even if it's been licensed already. =\ I'm not shelling out $50 for a DVD with 5 episodes on it. I'll just download it. >_>

If I really like a series, I'll buy the CDs from it, though. o_o Like Yuugiou... I've got (almost) all of the soundtracks, now. ^_^; You can't find the songs on them to download since no one likes background music. o_O;; *is probably one of those weird ones* ._.; I'll buy bootlegs, too, if a series is really long. $30 for 30 episodes. =P

How much worse is looking at porn and dirty then pirating copyright music? So what the imported CD is $50 or $150 dollars. If you can't afford it, then maybe you don't need anyway.

I guess most of you people just don't value music. ._.;;

Cherrim
February 12th, 2004, 03:29 PM
It was a different version of Kazaa released by the creators that didn't have spyware. o_o They discontinued free use of it or something, but you can still download it from other sites. ^_^; That's what I did the other day. XD;

Well i use to use it all the time. Though i don't use it much any more. If i hear a song i like i will go to my old computer and down load it. Though i never keep any music file in the Kazza folder. They can get you for it. Well the music people are the ones going after Kazza user realy now a day to a lest that what i heard of late.
Any who it is not evil(to me any way). Just a program and I don't have the money to get every song from a Cd when i only want one song no the whole CD.

Thats why my idea works so well. If the parent has to pay for it, they put up a huge disclaimer that says illegal goods and pornography can be obtained on the network, and that they make no attempt to filter this nor collect childrens ages, so if the parent buys it for them they will know. If they kid steals the card and uses it, the parent should see it on their bill and call. Then the company would inform them what their child bought and what it can be used for.
