Whislt computer related, can't see what other forum to post in apart from this one, so here goes.
One logs onto a download site (ie Mininova or Rapidshare) and there are two download links.
One is for (oh l don't know, let's just say the movie Angels & Demons for this posts sake) and the other is for my English family's party that they took a video of, and is what l actually want to download.
Now l know the first link would be totally illegal to download, but hopefully the second link would not be.
So, what with all the press about illegal downloads, who then knows what l am downloading (an illegal video or a family video) and how do they know this?
Sorry for the extreme examples but it is just the principle that counts.
Rather than they send me dvd's and part dvd's in the post, it's easier for me just to download family videos from one of these download sites.
Why then do you read about people getting "done" for downloading "illegal" videos. How do they know it's not a legal video?
Just curious, that's all!
