    kazaa lite is the best...limewire is slow and sucks as does bearshare...if you have a cable modem you can get any song in less than 2 minutes with kazaa lite...no spyware...no adware...nothing...if you don't want to get caught with music....just don't let anyone download off of you...that is the only way you can get caught...

    [b] Any of you worry about the legal crap like getting sued? Just curious because after having to reformat my HD and losing TONS of downloaded music I've been wanting to rebuild my collection but refuse to pay for it. I just worry about being the next victim of the RIAA Salem Witch Hunt. [/b][/quote]
    Like Rocky said in Rock V: "Sue me for what?"

    You should be able to just go into Explorer and find the Limewire downloads folder (probably something on the C drive like program files > limewire > downloads) and just cut and paste the .mp3 files into another folder somewhere else, since the download folder is the only one you should have 'shared' and thus, let other people upload from.

    Not to start any holy wars...I hope people like myself don't end up on the street because of downloading. It is is my real job and my side business. I stopped caring about downloaders a while ago. There is no way for me to fight it. All I can do is try to find the niches that work and still have demand.

    How much were the record companies really pushing your stuff?

    Don't get me wrong. but in your business, the money doesn't go to the artists.
    If I remember right, you don't start making bank until the 2nd or third album.

    If you know how to market yourself right and you have a good product. People will buy in.

    I mean, when was the last album that had you truly would pay $25 dollars for?

    Thriller?

    They made it into a business, and people think the product is over priced.

    If AOL can give everyone in the world (it seems) software cd's every week. Why am I paying 25$ for a 50cent ablum (ironic, that is howmuch I would pay for it).

    Well, I am behind the scenes. I don't make albums nor do I work for any label. I am in the wholesale aspect of the industry. We handle fulfillment of numerous stores as well as online retailers. If the indusry takes a complete dive, it is someone like myself that loses their job. The Presidents, CEOs, and VP's will all keep their jobs.

    I am lucky, If I want a song, I search for it on my school's network, which essentially grants me access to 3,000 hard drives. I can find hundreds of songs (by a particular artist, say) and copy them to my hard drive, which takes only a few seconds. Downloading files by sending them through a closed network is so amazing that it is hard to believe. I downloaded everything that pink floyd ever made in roughly 1 minute 30 sec.

    But now that I&#39;m home and I don&#39;t have access to loads and loads of porn and music within seconds, I use Limewire on a standard Cable modem. I already have tons of music, so I just search for porn. And remember folks: The police don&#39;t care if you download porn...just keep it the legal over 18 kind&#33;&#33;&#33; (What sick freak would download the illegal kind...ugh... <_< )

    Also, im 19, so the police can&#39;t say anything about me watching legal porn.

    I usually use BitTorrent & Suprnova.org to get full albums.

    And I use this new version of Kazaa, called Kazaa Ressurection for specific songs, works good.

    Who the hell pays &#036;25 for a CD?

    And you aren&#39;t paying for the CD itself you are paying for the material.

    Just as a &#036;30 book cost a buck to make, a photo from a photographer at &#036;50 costs him &#036;5 to produce, a &#036;2,000 wedding video is on a &#036;8 tape........

    not really a hard concept to grasp, is it?

    Seems like a whole lot of trouble, risk etc to find a free download of increadibly POOR quality, that I usually find painful to listen to.

    i like itunes a lot - you do save a few doillars on a whole album (they usually knock the price of the album down to &#036;10 instead of the &#036;12 to &#036;14 you&#39;d pay at &#036;1 a track). but i don&#39;t so much care about that - i just like that i can pick-and-choose what songs i want. isn&#39;t that the big complaint about the record industry, that nobody makes whole albums anymore, just singles? well, now i can buy that way too.

    i also like the one-step process of having my music everywhere i want it (home computer, work computer, ipod for everywhere else).
