ummm...i hope not.  i think you would get into trouble if you are one of those people who downloads alot, or enough to catch the attention of the authorities.  thats what i think, i could be wrong though

go look at that RIAA Hit list post and go to my reply and get that peerguardian the best protection you can have aswell as a firewall if you don't want to stop downloading. The only downside with peerguardian is that you can't visit sites that are hosted by the companies but you could just turn it off then back on when you're done.

obviously. But I'd say IRC is still pretty safe even though I'd think it would be alot easier to go after people on IRC then Kazza and shit.

The thing about mIRC, is that it is much more difficult to go after the big fish, than it is on Kazaa.
The bosses on mIRC is usually on shells, meaning that you can't see their real IP, they will have a fixed IP like e.g.
"truoutlaw is thuglif@look.bitch.stop.the.talking.and.BL0W-ME.com"
or
"content is thuglife@nasty.biat.ch"

And RIAA are after the people serving/supplying/ripping the music, not the ones who just download it.
The people getting sued by the RIAA, are getting sued for "making available copyrighted music" on Kazaa, not the people who are downloading it.

true, I forgot about that. I've mostly stopped using IRC, Newsgroups and bit torrent let's me get everything I want

I'm pretty amazed though how much the MPAA has tried to scan me though.

but IRC is pretty much the source!

you wont ever find the people doing it, because they blend in so well.

as long as you know the right people. It doesn't really matter cause the shit gets out within hours or less to newsgroups

you wont ever find the people doing it, because they blend in so well.

Well, not totally it just takes them a little bit longer to find them but they can't find them if they want. Probably pretty easy to get deep into the scene when you can offer prerelease stuff and large super fast shells, but I hope they are more careful with shit like that since the FBI and shit have become more active in the pursuit of cyber crime.
