    The joys of the internet

    So I ring home from Canada to the UK, to find out that me and my mates are being screwed over.

    My mate is being sued by the BPI as 1 of 28 people in the UK for file sharing, this is due to the fact that he uses Kazaa and that people have been uploading off him, getting a 5,500 fine which comes to 140 a month for 5 years, this will basically ruin his life, this is bad, I think there would be better ways of approaching this than screwing some people hard.

    Clicky

    I ring my Mum to find out they have the internet bill and there is 100's of calls to premium dialers, its only me and my folkes in the house, and no-one has been surfing premium rate dialer sites, check the link below.

    Clicky

    I mean man, the net is suppossed to bring joy and happiness, what happend?

    that really sucks (for both people).

    but people who use kazaa (and other file sharing software) should be aware that this can happen. the fine might be extreme, but there have been many warnings in recent months that they are going to be cracking down

    Life is meant to bring joy and happiness, too.

    I don't agree, not because I don't have joy and happiness in my life, I have, but because of my philosophical concept of life.

    i only use file sharing for getting pictures and stuff... and its great for getting free software off without using something like a cheap ass downloader accelerator, because i have slow internet, i cant just cancel the download and then restart it, but with the file sharing you can...

    am i the only innocent one
    am I crazy... if so, just kick the other me.

    I hope that some of those that produce nearly 50% of the webs traffic (bit torrent is the leader with 35% of the webs whole traffic) use it legaly.
