I was on today when I saw a download for a file-sharing program called Posioned. Basically it connects Mac users to the Gnutella, FastTrack (KaZaA), and OpenFT networks. This is good news for anyone that is sick to death of LimeWire. Hope you have a good time!

Maybe skrittles isn’t the editor, maybe his boss put that there.

er…in actual relevance to this news…..i just downloaded the program and like it quite a bit, it’s far more effective than acquisition thus far, though i’ll still keep acquisition as well since i’m attached to it.  thanks for sharing this find smile

(it’s not about stealing music people, it’s about previewing music and supporting the good artists thereafter)

Wow. They actually posted it!

I don’t even use Mac, I just thought that I would share the wealth of illegal pirated material.

I hope you all enjoy

That’s like the South Park epsiode: Don’t use drugs! Drugs are bad, m’kay! And just because you should know what it smells like… here is some. But don’t you use it!

Oh come on, they had to put “don’t steal music” otherwise they can be accused of promoting file sharing.  In a court of law, it could be proven that they were promoting file sharing just by posting it, but that won’t happen….it’s called Covering Your ### and I thank them for looking out for both them AND us.  wink

It’s not stealing… it’s borrowing, then putting back.

How do you steal anything? Are you god?

“File sharing” is not illegal.  “Copyrighted file sharing” is illegal.  Many people use these peer-to-peer file sharing programs to exchange their personal self-created files with others…<wink, wink>

Yeah yeah, but, ARE YOU GOD?

Editor’s note: Don’t steal music.

I guess they endorse stealing other digital content then.. wink

I wonder who came up with the phrase “Don’t steal music”. The guy at Apple who invented it must be brilliant.

“Editor’s note: Don’t steal music.”

Yeah, leave it where you found it and just copy it.

“‘Editor’s note: Don’t steal music.’

Yeah, leave it where you found it and just copy it.”

Now that’s genius….I was wondering if anyone would ever say that….
