DC Riaa risk?

Hey,

I’ve been using DC for a while a couple of years ago with good speeds, but stopped when Riaa started suing people left and right. However, I have yet to find a good safe alternative. How “safe” is DC? Did they add any new features to hide the persons identity or anything? I’m guessing on no.


#2

Are you uploading or can the person see the IP’s that are downloading off them? If so, then you aren’t safe. Since DC is well known I doubt it’s safe.

www.napster.com and www.tunebite.com are your friends :slight_smile: That’s what I use and I cannot be caught since it’s legal.

Off course you could always never SHARE any copyrighted material therefore they will never catch you.


#4

Napster’s selection sucks. They hardly have anything I listen to. You can’t not share on DC…


#5

You can just move the files out of the shared directory once they’re done downloading.

Nobody can bust you for sharing an incomplete file. :slight_smile:


#6

Share but dont share copyrighted material. In my DC share folder I have various Linux Distros, Freeware Software, Game Demos etc etc.


#7

Visit mp3.com, and look up the artists you like. They’ll tell you what legal music download sites carry their music.


#8

you could also use proxy servers to connect through which will definately make it harder to trace you…

Now thats an Idea I never really though of :slight_smile:
