could i apply the same policy for limewire? or is there any more appropriate policies which can be applied for limewire?
i’m using WLAN in my dorm. before i can use internet first i must register my MAC address then install 2 certificates from the isp.
then i see “my network zone” in firewal settings. after i click it, then 2x click “loopback zone”, there are 6 choices, for instance single ip address, a MAC address, etc and the default setting “an IP address mask”.
my question is, should i change this, for example insert my MAC address?
because i heard wlan security is more complicated and easier to be hacked in comparison to LAN.
Australian law prohibits the possession of unpaid copyrighted material that would normally require paymnent to obtain. NOTE - Not “making a profit out of it”, just “having” it. The reason being, if you already have the songs, there is next to no chance of you ever buying the original, therefore the simple act of possession has placed an undue restriction on the earning potential of the performer. New Zealand law is pretty much the same, as is Oregon state law.
Having the ability to download music does not equal having the right to do so.
Whether we like it or not, performers, just like software authors, have a right to make a fair and reasonable return on their efforts.
The site http://www.frostwire.com/ is safe nothing on there but the program and a few other links to forums and such know viruses or anything you can trust it. might want to post it as a fals identify to mcafee or they could just be saying it’s not safe because its P2P mcafee docent like P2P stuff.
For an Australian official to check your personal property (other than legislated circumstances, like airports etc.), they must have reasonable certainty - i.e. they’ve got to be pretty sure that something’s not kosher.
Is P2P illegal in Oz? No, the activity itself is legal. P2P is not a bad thing. It’s not it’s fault that it is generally used for bad purposes.
Of course it’s not, but it’s open nature does render it exceptionally liable to abuse. We run numerous private P2P chains here at work on security, ID integrity, financials and for collaboration between various government agencies.
For these purposes (dissemination of information between trusted members of a special interest group) P2P is ideal.
You don’t think your Government would do anything nefarious, do you.
