    Drewdog, if your not really sure what it is than you can go see what it is by going to the options tab on Kazaalite.It should tell you what you're connected as.

    Too late for that.... I already deleted the program from my computer - too much BS going on - too risky.

    Yes, everyone do this... and one by one, everyone will not give a dame about RIPP, and every poor people will not have the chance to listen to their favorite music no more, and every song that's not on the market will be soon destroy.

    Hell, I delete all my files after I put them on a CD. I'm on Kazaa Lite and I don't share files.

    I'm not too worried...

    Net providers warn file swappers

    By Jefferson Graham, USA TODAY

    The first home users targeted by the record industry in its broad assault on Internet piracy are starting to receive warnings from their Internet providers. And those users — or in some cases, frantic parents — are calling lawyers.
    "I'm getting a lot of calls," says Washington, D.C., attorney Eli Eilbott, one of eight listed on the Electronic Freedom Foundation's www.subpoenadefense.org site.

    He says many were from parents whose 12- and 13-year-olds were sharing six to eight CDs' worth of songs. "These kids didn't know it was illegal, or even had a concept of what it meant," he says. "Their parents are freaking out."

    The Recording Industry Association of America, intending to file "hundreds" of lawsuits next month, has sent at least 871 subpoenas to Internet providers and universities, seeking identities of users who have been tracked by their screen name on swap sites.

    A subpoena "is no guarantee you will be sued," says Fred von Lohmann of the EFF, who believes the RIAA is starting by casting a wide net. The EFF posted a database Wednesday on its eff.org Web site, where people can see if they're being targeted. Von Lohmann also has received calls from parents. "I say: 'Don't panic yet, but you should seek legal advice.' "

    RIAA spokesman Jonathan Lamy says, "If someone wants to resolve the issue, they can always contact the RIAA." Eilbott, however, doesn't recommend that. "Why bring yourself to their attention?"

    Sacramento attorney Daniel Ballard hopes some parents will choose to challenge the RIAA rather than settle. "I'd do the case pro bono. I believe this could be a landmark case on the issue of fair use," he says. "People have been sharing songs forever on tape. To share digitally is no different."

    Relax as hard as the RIAA is working to prosecute people, there is someone working just as hard to develop software to block them from obtaining you identity. Just give it a couple of months.

    i'll see if i can find an article mentioning it, but supposedly the RIAA is only targeting people who share files, not those who download them, as some people have already alluded to. so what is important is not to share your files. u can still download them though and the RIAA won't care. (of course not sharing one's files kind of defeats the whole purpose of file sharing)

    Good to know, I guess I'm off the hook. :D

    The RIAA may win this battle, but I still think the file sharers will win the war. I think people will stop sharing...until this all blows over in a few months, then the sharers will come back probably in higher numbers than ever before.

    Sounds like a Star Wars movie. :cool:

    If they catch me I'll either...

    A. tell them the devil made me do it
    B. tell them my mom always taught me to share as a child

    Anyway, I don't even use Kazaa. I'm an Imesh kinda girl.
