music file sharing
Hey guys, for anybody who's interested I have this program called Qnext and it's basically like an instant messenger program on steroids.

The really cool part is you can set it up to share files on your computer, I have a few friends set up with it and we can all download each other's music. If you're interested go to [url="http://www.qnext.com"]www.qnext.com[/url] to get hooked up with the program, once you get set up my username is mattydread, add me to your friend list and away we go!

This is a pretty cool program!

I'm under the Username Gmanc711, I have all my Skins Clips up there to share as well.

And yes, I do have backstreet boys songs. And No, I am not gay (not that there is anything wrong w/ that)

Gmanc, they're your girlfriends right? J/K :)

When I download it, I'll be under the name MalcolmANDJemima.

I have all SORTS of stuff that I'll have as soon as I get high speed permanently.

Just a little update about P2P file sharing. I heard that the case against Grokster went to Supreme Court to decide whether or not the file-sharing companies should be held responsible.

As far as I'm concerned, that's kind of like holding Spray Can makers responsible when dumbass kids snort their product. As long as in the privacy statement that put it clearly "This product is not intended for illegal use." I believe that the file-sharing companies can wash their hands of any responsibility.

A defeat for Grokster is going to be a defeat that will extend to the civil liberties of all Americans.

Say I'm a telephone company... should I get charged for illegal transactions being made over my phone lines?

I think not. This is the same premise.

SKINSnCANES 01-26-2005 11:05 PM

yea but most people only do legal things on phone lines and stuff like that. how many people have ever used a file sharing program to legally share their family photos? They were all setup to share music, porn, software, stuff like htat.

BDBohnzie 01-27-2005 10:48 AM

not necessarily family photos, but millions of people use file sharing everyday to download music legally from places like iTunes, Rhapsody, etc. those use file-sharing technology to provide music to its consumers...

TheMalcolmConnection 01-27-2005 11:15 AM

Regardless of what P2P is used for, the venue cannot be held responsible for what illegal activities going on within it. Even though it's true that the majority of things that DO go on are very illegal, a loss by the P2P networks would be a use hit for the rest of the software industry that provides legitimate sharing/downloading services.

I think our resident lawyer, Joe Redskin, should step in and settle this

The reason Napster got shut down was everything went through a central server. Most of these companys, don't go with the same topology. Thus making them invinciable from those laws. Right now the RIAA is suing Sherman Networks (Kazaa) but doesn't look like they'll do anything. I love how the RIAA loses a class action suit where people said the quality of CDs has been drasticly reduced, yet they want 17 dollars for one. Fuck the RIAA. I've bought, and found, more artists over Napster (and to a lesser extent) Kazaa/Limewire than I would have ever dreamed without it. It's great for people like me who don't necessarily like the main-stream hiphop but realize the strength of some of the lyrics, especially by underground guys.
