Re: illegal downloads...
of couse you can get caught! its a fact. ip's can monitor what you are downloading and even track your ip address for a start. theres no safe way to download but theres safer ways. bit torrent is meant to be safer than p2p from what ive heard. what i think is the best way to download if you really want to is to not download very frequently and to be careful when registering downloads. chances of getting caught are very slim unless you download and share a ton of files per day then you might be buggered. tell him to be careful. i would also be careful with that xp he has as they are cracking down on piracy (microsoft)
