    Ok, whats the low down on downloading stuff from places like these? Safe? Not safe? I think the whole idea is pretty cool, but not if you get busted or fined for it. Also, whats some other good free sites like this? The whole idea of free downloading is great,*cough* XXX :grin: ,,,, but getting busted would suck. Later Jacob

    I've been using Limewire. So far no problems and it has a simple, easy to figure out interface. :)

    i think limewire is awesome. I used to use Kazaa and it sucks, morpheus was the same.

    I use soulseek ocationally. But not to much anymore. I just rip cds off friends and grab mp3s from lan parties. My collection is near 30,000. I stopped downloading because 3 of my friends have been sued for downloading. :(

    You must run Antivirus and keep it updated. I use Kazalite and keep my downloads modest, but every so often Norton antivirus catches a couple. Kaza lite doesn't have any spyware is the reason it's called lite. Also I run "PeerGuardian" to block most "bad" corporations from checking up on me.

    I use limewire. It's pretty good, but I have a hard time finding songs sometimes (has a lot to do with the type of music I'm looking for, but sometimes the search is real finnicky and won't find mainstream stuff).
