It is easy to avoid illegal music, movie and even game download problems: just watch the legal stuff.
If you download any copyright-protected files using a peer-to-peer service, which almost every download program are, you could end up with a lawsuit and a bill on 150,000 US dollar.
There are a lot of people who think that the chances of being caught, is so small or far away from them that they take the chance, and download illegal. Of course, it is their choice so they have no one else to blame than themselves when they stand with a lawsuit. However, why would you take the chance when there are many legal download services accessible online.
Many people also incorrectly think that membership sites offer only P2P file sharing software, and that every other sort of downloading is going to be too expensive. Those people are terribly wrong, there are lots of membership sites, that offer unlimited legal downloads to their members, of course as long as you pay your member ship or have a lifetime subscription. Another type of downloading could be the one, where the customer has to pay an amount for each song that they download.
Some payment download sites also has some illegal stuff, but it is possible to avoid the illegal downloads through those P2P software’s. You can either tell the program to deny you access, when trying to download illegal files, or you can tell the program to reduce the search, so that it only searches for the legal files. You can of course also find a website to download from, which offers files licensed for downloading. You will be very unlikely and lucky to get free legal downloads.
And to get access to paid sites is very inexpensive, especially when you go for one-time payment membership. When I say cheap, it means that you have to deposit a fee of 20-40 US dollar and then you will get respectively: one year, two year and lifetime subscription. When you have paid the fee you are then free to download until your subscription runs out; which it of course won’t if you have a lifetime subscription.
The programs then also features almost every file you want, while it is close to be free, and first of all: it’s legal. Those file libraries, offers licensed files for download or streaming, and it is a hundred percent legal, and therefore also the safest way to download files.
When just following this ‘rule’ it is easy, to avoid illegal download issues (and a law suit). All you do is to download legal files, which many sites online offers for a cheap membership fee. Remember that the cost of illegal downloads can be high if you get caught.
