so a buddy of mine got several emails and letters in the mail basically saying that he will be sued for downloading Creed via bittorrent.

LESSON: another reason not to listen to Creed

anyways has this every happened to you? Is it worth the risk. I got the Insomnium Discography using Bittorrent and the link Axe gave me today, but I don't want to be sued for it. lol

other than that I'm a torrent noob. Shocked

Torrents are good for discogs but if you don't want to get caught then don't use torrents...use blogspots.

I doubt you'll get sued or even be threatened of getting sued because of the Insomnium downloads, you can see why your friend got sued for the Creed dwl's though...because Creed are or were a major label big name band and the fat cat major labels don't take kindly to people downloading their shit. With more underground aand less well known bands like Insomnium you don't have to worry as much but as VR said try and use direct dwnld's from blogs instead of torrents.

Not that I don't believe you, but your friend's story is rather strange. Torrents are pretty untraceable, compared to direct downloads. I'd be pretty interested in how he actually got caught.

Generally you get a letter or some kind of notification from your ISP before you get sued. If they ignored the letter or failed to change something on their computer, like installing PeerGuardian, then whatever. They can't be mad about being sued.

If they did not get any kind of notification, that blows.

Torrents are not untraceable.

You are downloading obscure foreign bands. America doesn't care. But stateside record companies like to menstruate when you download their bands. I wouldn't worry

Actually, just last week, I got in trouble with Google because one of my posts on the blog was Massive Attack's newest EP. All they did was delete the post. So, it really depends on the bands involved. Silly hypocritical music industry.

yea I didn't get much info/detail from him. It was just a scare for me and thought I'd ask you fellows here who have been in that game longer than myself.

Well I don't listen to much popular or mainstream stuff...and that of which I do I could always purchase with Itunes. lol

thanks for the responses guys I'll sleep a lil better at night knowing ya'll haven't had any problems lol
