The world of peer to peer sharing of files (p2p) has increased since napster and kazaa came onto the playing field. It's insane seeing how much information you are able to obtain with a click of a button, but illegal to obtain and especially illegal to share. I used to p2p, but with the risk in mind, I've taken a long break from the usual click download. What do you all think about p2p sharing.

I think p2p programs have really damaged the business of shareware softwares, singers etc. On the other hand these are really helpful for those who dont want to spend a single penny Very Happy

I dont use p2p though because of the risk involved & spywares.

Exactly, so tempting yet so bad to do. I do have to admit that giving the companies whom produce the software, music, etc. hecks credit and should be paid what their worth (such as purchasing a copy of their software, music, etc.) well for me I'll take a rain check on that, umm sometime when the time is right..

Better purchase a software liscense instead of downloading it from a p2p program such as iMesh.

Reasons:

1) It's illegal
2) You'll eventually damage your windows because of spywares
3) Downloading speed is terribly slow
4) Hacking possibilities

& many more Wink
