What he means is that this forum, although international, does not help with things considered to be illegal. Downloading copyrighted material is considered to be such. And even if it is not, someone has to share the material, and then he will be doing illegal things, which brings us back toi the not helping part.

Please familiarize yourself with forum rules and guidelines.

funny thing is, the original poster said nothing in his post relating to either downloading copyrighted material or advocating piracy.

There are a number of bands out there that openly offer their music for free in a number of places on the internet for download. This is very legal and an excellent marketing avenue.

It's too bad that the minute someone posts questions about downloading music or shareware, everyone's initial reaction is negative.

This discussion has occurred dozens of times before.

Read the post Danthemandoo linked to - it doesn't just mention illegalities, but a few other reasons why we don't help with it. Furthermore, through experience, myself (and several others) know not to be so naive as to think that when people want to download "music" they are talking about the example you gave - they are talking about Usher's latest release, or whatever. Benefit of the doubt is given where appropriate. We have to use our personal judgement though, because nobody is going to say "How do I download illegal music that I should buy in shops, that might infect me with a virus" smile

Should we get it wrong (which has happened only 2-3 times in the past), the person will reply telling us exactly what they want, and they will be helped further. 90% of the time though, there's no reply, or they thank us for informing them of the actual purpose of mIRC/IRC.
