You know, I've had Kazaa Lite, and I've been having internet problems so I called my internet service, SNIP, and they said that the RIAA is searching for people, but as of right now its only people that share their files and have tons and tons (like 1,000 and up) songs. Porn doesn't matter, every guy in the world downloads that, lol, the only thing I'd worry about is if you download the illegal porn, cause ya know, its not really legal, haha. But they're starting to lose things, my friend's friend is on their hitlist, and has been for months now and they haven't done anything at all, so just stop sharing the files (if you're not sure how, just highlight all of them and click Share so its off) so people can't really track back to your computer.
it's better to be safe then sorry, besides i like free stuff like the next guy, but its' really stealing. just expect them to treat it like theft and be careful. I wouldn't participate in that anymore, cause this is just the beginning.
It depends on the laws of your country, i think ur in pakistan so i dont know what the law there states about pornographic material. If your thinking from that the US might come after you for porn uhm..dont worry about that bud The RIAA is going after those who swap large quantities of music on P2P software, but the RIAA has no juristiction to prosecute anyone out of the US for swapping songs. I dont think they also have any say on porno, there is no porno association muhahah, however if ur swapping child porno is a diffrent story, that comes under the FBI then buddy u got a biiiiiiiig problem if so!!

Yes, only the most serious users are being targetted- and you have to be distributing for them to target you. Mind you, if you are sharing and and have downloaded a lot and left it in the shared folder you will be distributing by default.
It is always worth noting that downloading copyrighted material is illegal, but not only is it impractical for them to wade through the many millions of users trying to track each tiny download, they only really care if you are making a huge habit out of it. No-one begrudges the odd tune but there is an entire underground industry pumping out hundreds and thousands and it is the real organised part of it all they are trying to stop. Right now it is only in the US but others will probably follow sometime.
No-one really cares that much about porn, of course, because trying to prove ownership of it is near impossible and the porn industry trying to mount an effort to protect itself is unlikely to be as commercially and publically popular as the music industry!
So yeah, try not to do anything illegal, folks, 'tis the best way. Artists and all the others that work on music deserve to be paid for their work.
Meanwhile, moving this to the GDF.
