I'm from Canada, so I can download all the music I damn well please.

same here, well i know harper was going to pass something that is a federal law stating that if you are caught distributing priated software and music you get a 500k fine or go to jail for 5 years, you dont get in trouble for downloading just the person releasing it, and the person has to be in canada, or the server does.

Back when it was first going on I logged onto Napster one morning and got the message "You have been banned by Metallica"

I was like "...... SWEET!"

Doesn't the Canadian government have a huge thing against Illegal Downloads and didn't the CRIAA get Demonoid.com shut down a while back because of Canadian traffic on the website?

My ISP used to send like 2 warnings a week.

In Canada they aren't required to terminate the contract though.

Not for long. They're putting in a new law with really stiff penalties for pirating.

I live in Canada, and I thought they recently passed a law making it illegal.
My uncle got his internet shut down by his isp (rogers) cause he was pirating software, but not music.

I didn't know that. And with our election coming up I bet a lot of my fellow semi-ignorant Americans don't know either.

A lot has changed since then though.

no

the canadian government seems to be laid back and if it wasnt for the US they probly wouldnt do shit about torrenting and P2P applications.

I use Limewire to download alot. Some bands I wont really download, or if I do, I'll go buy there CD as well. Alot of bands lose sales because of others are always downloading there music. I atleast try doing my part by buying merch and CD's from a small handful of bands I listen to.

I do get alot of music and movies off of Limewire though.
