    Dodgy Music Downloads

    Well I suppose it was bound to happen?

    A list of dodgy sites is here:

    http://www.cdt.org/copyright/warninglist/

    Basically they try to dupe people into paying for downloading illegal music distributions.

    OK, this will probably only affect parents and other weaker growths in the vinyard of life; but the RIAA don't take prisoners And you will have no legal redress.

    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    Thanks for the list Nihil - I have been to one or more sites on there in the past. However now I have seen the light :P

    Hi Cider,

    The point of this post wasn't about file sharing. That is up to the individual, and it is their responsibility to know the risks.

    What we have here are apparently legitimate outfits who are actually selling illegal services.

    Now a lot of parents that I know would naively assume that if they pay for the service it is OK, and I doubt if their children would give it much thought.

    Potential for big trouble there I feel?
