      downloading music/movies with sky bb

      what are sky's thoughts on downloading/uploading p2p mp3s & movies, movie torrents, mp3 torrents and so forth??

      As 6 big ISPs have now done a deal(I think virgin media is one), if they catch you, they can ban you for a whole year, before you are allowed back on. Is SKY one of these ISPs who have done the deal or no?? getting worried as i have been told by somebody about it...

      Re: downloading music/movies with sky bb

      But, is downloading illegal?

      or is it mostly uploading that is illegal?

      Or is both downloading/uploading illegal?

      If you have not paid for the file you are downloading or the person uploading from you has not paid for it then it is illegal to do either if the file in question is something normally purchased.

      Its time musicians were paid a proper wage instead of subsidising so called celeb's and the production companies are just as bad as the free... sorry.. downloaders, you can almost hear them collecting their brownie points scanning around for a cheaper musician than the last one

      quoted from a from PC Advisor user comment.

      Btw, I agree to this comment!

      And how do they stop people using news groups to download or direct d/loads person to person (msn) even limewire has the facility to connect direct to one person ,ftp, url links, rapidshare, proxy server the list is endless. P2P file sharing is yesterdayís technology

      I remember using napster on a 56k modem d/loading one song at 2kbs it would take hours, now with many ways to download it takes minutes to d/load a album.
      They canít stop it someone somewhere is programming the next generation of p2p more secure, with better encrypted data....

      Cool Re: downloading music/movies with sky bb

      In today's world, with growing concerns of global warming, terrorist threats, credit crunches, astronomical cost of living etc etc etc....and the 'man' is more concerned about P2P sharing. Priorities?

      Re: downloading music/movies with sky bb

      Can't say I'm too worried to be honest, I reckon they will mainly target Limewire users and people using the big public torrent trackers like The Pirate Bay. Stick to private torrent sites and things should be ok (fingers crossed).

      Besides the talk on the radio today mentioned that a warning letter would be sent out, but that no further action would be taken.

      And in further completely unrelated news, make sure you all see the new Batman film. Because it is great. (And yes I will now watch this at the cinema AND buy the DVD when it releases).
