    Down Loading.

    Hi, my name is Cliff Newton. Some of you know me as free2rap622. For a while I have

    been downloading songs, and other illegal files, mianly off of lime wire. Let me tell you.

    It got me in alot of trouble. So I am here to tell you about downloading, and why most of it,

    just about all of it is bad.

    One reason why downloading is bad. One main reason why downloading is bad is because

    you are probably downloading software or files that are illegal. If your downloading a song,

    lets say off of limewire or ares. That IS ILLEGAL. If you don't own the song then don't

    download it. You may how ever if you pay for it, down load it off of iTunes. You can't

    just download any song that you want. I had to learn that the long way.

    Another reason why downloading is bad is because you could download a virus, witch

    could destroy your computer. Ways to prevent this is to NOT download. Or at least unless you

    have permisson by the creator. Most the time we don't realize what were downloading is

    illegal. I didn't know that the songs I was downloading off of limewire were illegal untill

    I was told about it. You should delete all of your illegal files off of your computer before

    it is to late.

    One of the most important reason not to download is because it is just like stealing,

    some of you may have seen the preview before a movie that says, " You wouldn't steal a purse,

    You wouldn't steal a car, etc. You WOULDN"T STEAL A MOVIE!" It is the same thing for games,

    also known as Rom's or Iso's. Someone out there paid good money for a game. And for you to

    download it for your own use without paying a penny is just like stealing. Remember, nothing

    in this world is free. You may think because someone went and put the iso on the internet

    means your aloud to download it, but your not.

    In my conclusion, I would like to opologize to every one I have ever downloaded from,

    The people that I downloaded songs form off of limewire,and people I used to download Iso's

    from. I knew the isos were illegal. But as most of the people that download them, I thought

    it was cool. Getting FREE portable games online, and being able to play them on my psp.

    I thought AWESOME. Now I know that as AWESOME as I think it is, the reversed consequences

    in the eyes of the law are way more AWESOME. So people please stop downloading illegal Music,

    photos, roms, isos, and everythign else that is illegal. Follow the right path that i choose.

    2% of the people on the internet have a sig that bashes 98% of the people on the internet. If you are in the 98% whoaren't bastard F***'s with a superiority complex, copy and paste this into your sig.

    92% of teens have moved onto rap. If you are part of the 8% that still listen to real music, copy and paste this into your signature

    which do you think a company is going to go after 2000 downloaders or one uploader its very hard for a company to pick and choose who thay are going to attack.Also there are Certain viruses that are in certain files and thats nothing when you have anti-virus.Also this could be the age old debate on FileSHARING.But my point is you can only get nailed if you upload illegal content or share it.I got caught sharing the sims(from 1995) and all EA did was send cablevision a message saying i have to delete it or they will press charges.Needless to say i will never buy from EA again it was from 1995 who the hell still pays for that?

    It doesn't really matter what kind of trouble I got in. What matters is that I learned my lesson.

    Dude if you are caught with illegal songs on your computer it can be up to a $500 fine for each and every song found. Im not sure about games though.

    Before reading this thread I think people should go listen to Don't Download this song by Weird Al. It exsplains alot of this and is funny to boot. Oh and just in case you don't pick up on it he is being sarcasdtic. (It seemsa to me like he really does want you to download his song.)

    No offense, but as big as things like Napster and Kazaa got on the news, that you didn't know what you were doing was illegal is bs.

    And @Madhatter, the government takes action on behalf of the artists.
