      we use itunes so we do pay for the music. I think it is “stealing” if you use limewire etc and the free sharing sites. I dont want to get in trouble and get sued for downloading a $1.00 song. Also I dont think it is right even if we were not to get caught. JMHO not to mention the viruses. My daughter knows these are illegal and knows her computer will be gone if I see it downloaded unto her computer.

      alot of kids use free downloading sites such as Limewire. I know my girls were using it every chance they got. I would uninstall it from the computer, they’d put it back on until I finally banned them from using the computer at all. These sites are a hotbed for viruses. I’ve been without my home computer over a month now due to it crashing from a virus. I finally get it tomorrow. They guy who fixed it said he’s pretty sure it was Limewire or something like it that left us vulnerable.

      I’m not computer saavy enough to understand all the details, but I already told my girls if anyone uses one of these sites, they will be banned from the computer except for school projects (and under MY supervision) for well into the future.

      But, it is true about CDs, I don’t know hardly any kids who purchase them anymore. They all download.

      But don’t you have to pay to download songs onto an
      MP3 player? And have a computer at home to do that? I
      want to make sure not to give a gift that requires
      resources they might not have.
