    you are correct but, because of their potential to be used in breach of copyright is what makes it "illegal"...think of it as i help you rob a bank, i dont actually rob the bank or drive or anything, im in a diff country. but i can still be arrested for helping you

    meh. i personally dont think they deserved it for that reason though. for them to really accomplish anything they need to go after the millions who download files. not just the websites. downloading will never stop and doing this to one sites operators wont affect things too much. mininova hit over 8,000,000,000 downloads earlier this month.

    ya but those people doing the investigations, cant get those how ever many people. just to many people and to much money for them to spend to do so. so what there doing is going after one site. thinking that it will help and make people go o shit they got fined $900,000, i better stop so i dont get fucked. lol another example is the dea. they no they cant stop drug flow into usa, how ever they try to think that if they do this and that, that other people will be like fuck is this guy im woking with dea or is he legit.

    Heres the thing i dont use them i know of them and can direct people there but the reason it cost's so much to go buy software is because they price it 3 to 1 they figure for everyone copy sold at least 2 will obtain it for free and they are making their's
