LMAO!! Stupid copyright buffs!


Have you ever had your computer crash and had to replace it or reinstall all the files due to a virus or other such problem?

The nature of “peer-to-peer” file sharing sites like eDonkey, Gnutella, KaZaA, etc., open your computer to destructive viruses and worms and annoying pop-ups.

Common Viruses:
Apher, Benjamin, Backdoor, Duload, Fizzer, Hantner, Klez, Neuer, Nimda, Livra and Magic Eightball

You also become a distribution source for illegal downloading of movies, music and more, which makes you just as responsible if you had downloaded the movie yourself.

Network users have a back door to your hard drive while you're online, thereby seeing your personal, private information, such as bank records, social security number, etc.

Is the theft of your personal information worth the free movie?

More bullshit...

Sounds like blackmail to me...

At the end of the day, when you get right down to it, downloading copyrighted movies off the Internet is illegal. It's against the law. It's stealing.

The Internet is not anonymous.
There is a very good chance you will get caught.
It is not difficult for investigators to trace illegal activity back to your computer through your IP address.

How bad could it be if you get caught?
You could get expelled from school,
Fired from work,
5 years in prison,
up to $250,000 in fines.

Is it really worth risking that over the cost of a single movie ticket?
