We have no objection to FRIENDS occasionally sharing noncopyrighted files. Our objection is to using mIRC to share files that are illegal to share, and we have the right to refuse to help ppl do so.
-against copyright laws
-the files and the hot pursuit of them are a huge source of trojans (need i explain why that is NOT a good thing?)
-against the AUP of many networks and providers
From Khaled's FAQ
Question: How do you feel about the fact that some people use mIRC to distribute copyright/illegal material? or to harm others?
Answer: There is a common misconception that I'm able to prevent people from doing these things. That's not the case. I don't have or host any IRC networks, servers, or channels.
mIRC is only a client-side software that allows you to connect to public IRC networks around the world, in the same way that Internet Explorer allows you to connect to public websites around the world.
I'm not happy about the fact that some people use mIRC in a negative way, however mIRC is used by many people, there will always be a some people who use it in ways with which I don't agree.
