I have a fair bit of decent quality MP3's on my home computer and I also run a server. If any of you want to log on and grab some, I will share. Only thing I ask is that you share back!

PM me for a username and password and I will get you fixed up. Please don't forget to share!!!!!

No offense, but posting this in a public forum might not be the best idea, unless we want the recording industry assholes of america all over our asses.

True enough. Never gave it much thought. I was just trying to throw it out there for anyone in the whole spirit of sharing! If Axiom wants to delete this, no problem at all.

Food for thought...

Is it wrong or illegal to let a friend barrow a DVD or CD you own? Afterall, they didn't buy it.

Furthermore, is it then wrong to have someone over to watch a movie they didn't buy or some music they don't own?

Hey, I ain't saying it should or shouldn't be illegal or is or is not illegal. I'm just saying that it's dangerous to your financial security these days to be offering such things.

Inane,
The answer to all your questions is an obvious no. Movie rental stores exist legally, and they even make a profit from lending out movies.

A more interesting question would be: could you be held liable for allowing a friend to borrow a hard drive containing all your own legally ripped MP3s, knowing full well that they could easily copy the entire contents before returning it into your possession? Could you be held liable for letting him/her borrow all your original media knowing the same?

The Induce Act is some pretty scary proposed legislation.
