I was curious how many people have used Kazaa to download files and what they think about the legality of doing so. I have downloaded some songs here
and there, but not too many. I have a friend who has a "library" of songs that he downloaded from the site and I have heard people say that he could
technically be arrested for doing this. I have also heard that Kazaa-lite is not owned by Sharman who owns Kazaa, and there is a major lawsuit between
"the most annoying thing about Sharman has been its practice of embedding programs in the free Kazaa software to make money, everything from popup
ads to spyware that tracks Internet behavior."
"When Sharman goes away, something else will spring up: As I write this, some 3.8 million people are connected to the service and more than 800
million files are being shared. Future attempts to capture this huge audience are inevitable. "
Ever since the controversy with Napster, I heard that someone was going to offer a file sharing site like Kazaa and Napster but with a small monthly
fee that would be distributed to the record labels, but I haven't seen anything like this. Would you be willing to pay a small fee for something like
this? I would be willing to do so if they had a good selection of files.
