    The chances you'll be one of the group is slim to none. They won't throw 3.4 million people in jail (current amount of users on Kazaa).

    I understand the individual chances of being caught are slim. This probably makes me more nervous than some because last year, the FBI conducted six raids on our campus of persons who had servers trafficking large amounts of ... suspicious data. Like, .5TB/day. And a lot of people still do... but with two OC-3's and two T3's are our disposal, can you blame us? ;)

    The FBI is monitoring. They're looking for the bigger fish who are transfering and serving a lot (at least a lot more then the average user). Although I'm sure both the FBI and RIAA are looking to make an example out someone.

    What fun that would be if you got busted on campus? I would think they would handle it similarly to plagerism and you're booted out of college, have it marked on your college record for businesses to see (I would think they have to document why they booted you out), as well as face charges from the RIAA/FBI/etc. In the end, was would it be worth it? Is it too late to matter?

    DigiCrime: Have you been following the mess with Verizon? Its very possible this is a home file swapper...

    skimmed over them sites..... that sucks!!! glad i aint with verizon. Even with this, what keeps them from getting users on the IRC that are DCCing each other.

    guess that means i can use kazaa only to get porn :big grin: oh well I seen this coming already, i dont really use it anymore.

    Whoops... You might have missed the point of the Verizon case.

    This is a test case and Verizon is just the first victim. Now that there's a verdict (although Verizon is appealling it I believe) who ever wants to get someones name may do so on the basis of the POSSIBILTIES of illegal activety from any ISP (not just Verizon and this would also include your place of employment as well as colleges - although this is just my guess).

    So there's two parts to this that suck:

    1. The possibility of illegal activety can trigger an ISP to be forced to give up your info.

    2. Anonymity as we know it today will be a bit different with the idea that at any time, your Internet provider may have to release your personal information (and an interesting question would be if they would ever contact you letting you know they have done so or if they would just release it and let you be surprised later).
