What does everybody think to filesharing? Specifically copyrighted material, rather than the concept.
Just interested to see what mix of opinions BLAG users have on the subject :)

FWIW, i don't use p2p much except to use bittorrent to grab Free ISOs :)

The times I do are usually to track down something a bit rare/obscure such as "El Topo" or politics stuff where the author probably doesn't care if it's pirated (such as "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised").

That said, I think the copyright laws are, well, dah. I don't even want to get into it. They suck.

I download all the music I want 'cause it's still legal here in Canada (woohoo for constantly rotating minority governments!). :D As for everything else, I'll occasionally grab a movie that's hard to get otherwise (can't get it in stores nor rent it).

Thanks,
Stephen Clement

I will use it if I can't find something. Generally though I have no need for it.
