I am REALLY mad now. Some new product is out, made by KaZaa, that allows phone calls to be made from the computer. I'm not stating the name of the program, or where it is located. If you do, I'm deleting this thread and reporting you. HOW CAN ANYONE NOT FIND PROBLEMS WITH THESE PROGRAMS???? I just left a thread at another site where someone said they used it. MINUTES LATER, they posted again, saying that they were hearing Ads being played from his speaker.
People who use KaZaa and the other program think like this:

"Hey I installed KaZaa today! It's great! Files have been deleting themselves at random, though. I wonder what's causing it???"
"Hey I installed *EVIL PROGRAM* to make free phone calls today! It's great! My computer has been playing strange wav sounds about some new product, though. I wonder what's causing it???"
ARGGGHHHHHH :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: .

Wouldn't you want to mention the name of the program, so that other people can avoid it?

I dunno.....too many people would like it and use it, I doubt the MANY users of KaZaa ( :mad: ) would take my post into consideration.

EDIT: Plus, it says "Made by the makers of KaZaa" on the main site (definitely not hidden), so people should know if they find it.

I use kazaa, and i think like this:

*I installed kazaa lite, to get rid of adds and spy ware. Works perfectly. I get all the movies, musics and apps I want, no problem.*

Sorry, but I just dont like people, who dont know how to use spyware and file sharing programs in correct balance, trying to tell others how i think.



Then again, I may not have kazaa at all, and am involved in absolutly no media sharing what so ever.


I do love plausible deniability.

Even though file sharing is illegal?

Since when? The day file sharing becomes illegal is the day the Internet becomes completely useless for any legal purpose. What's illegal is copyright infringement. I don't care for current U.S. copyright laws, however, because the balance is completely in the copyright holders' favor.

Times are changing, though; and the public's tolerance of mass copyright infringement now will, after copyright holders' suicidal reaction is finished, lead to the development of new ways to distribute information, art, and entertainment to the public while still satisfying the works' creators. It is my honest opinion that a record label is no longer necessary for a band to become successful.

Yes. File sharing is not illegal. Breach of copyright is.

If you share a copyrighted file, that's illegal. But otherwise, you can share all you want.

More accurately, it is illegal to share a copyrighted file without license to do so.

So we should encourage everyone to apply Free Software and Open Source principles to everything!
Though that's a little absurd :)
