File sharing is legal everywhere. Anyway, a firewall or proxy would make your IP address appear as something else.

Once again, the same mentality. Maybe this is what RIAA wants? Anyway, music sharing is perfectly legal AS LONG AS you own an original. If I own a particular album, I can make as many copies as I please, and I can send it to anyone who already has a legal copy. It's when people don't own the original that it becomes illegal.

who said i was scared? i was just wondering if it was possible to hide your ip address because kazaa the older version claimed it could, and again in the u.s. they are suing people for music piracy (file sharing) so its obviously not just films and when i say file sharing i mean swapping music and its illegal in the states, and btw they have been trying to shut down file sharing (music file sharing) for a while so its not that easy they are still trying to shut it down in canada
