Copyright Laws

Has there ever been a successful prosecuation on downloading music?
What law is it breaking?
Can your I.S.P know how much music has been downloaded?

I am in the UK.


There have been numerous prosecutions for file sharing. I could be wrong, but I haven’t seen anyone prosecuted for simply download as of yet. But if you share what you download, you are definately putting yourself in the spotlight. That doesn’t mean that they won’t start going after downloaders, just that I don’t believe they have as of yet.

To improve your chances of avoiding getting caught you should be using apps like safepeer & peerguardian. These block known commercial organisations that might be interested in your activities.
Plenty of advice can be found in the Music Download,P2P forum.
