I have that question. Is kazaa (or its clones) legal? I've seen in another topic about the P2P. Or is it depending on the current laws?

Apparently it's legal as long as your computer isn't a supernode. You can download, but as soon as you let others download from you it's illegal. Kind of puts a damper on the whole theory of P2P file transfering, huh http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

If it is illegal, it shouldnt be.

Support the artist? To hell with the artists.

Appreciate music. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/forums/icons/icon14.gif

:confused:
So you say it's legal to download from others, and illegal to let others download your files. Wow, I don't understand it [more :confused: :confused: ]

Edit=As for the artists, I do think it may be illegal, you support artists buying their CDs and stuff.

crazyguy100 its legal to use but lots of people are trying to shut it down. There is nothing wrong with posting you want a song and someone giving it to you.

Turning off filesharing and the option to act as a supernode can save you from getting into trouble.
