But can CNET claim NO MINORS ever used the Software? NO, they Published LETTERS from them!
NOW, Here is a REAL LETTER from a 15 year old girl submitted to CNET!
Unbelievable advice given to a 15 year old girl regarding problems that she had by downloading "Dreamweaver" from Limewire. Published as part of the "Spyware Horror Stories" series.
The girl ADMITS to having not only downloaded the copyrighted software "Dreamweaver" AND the anime movie "Teen Drama Queen" with Limewire but also admits that she also downloaded the JUST recently published "Harry Potter Book" from Bitcomet AND Bittorrent. Did the EDITOR'S even address the severity of copyright issue? HELL NO! They advised that she forget to scan the files and that they were happy she had gone legal by deciding to buy the "Real" software. They even thoughtfully made the words "BitComet" AND "Bittorent" live links so readers could jump to the download.com software download pages for each notorious p2p offering on Cnet.
( Although these are vintage FAIR USE Screen Captures, The article is STILL AVAILABLE today on Cnet.com!!!!!)
NOTE! CNET TOOK IT DOWN! I WONDER WHY? Here WAS THE link!

Read the Editor's Response. I can't believe they even published the Girl's letter as it was a pure admission that LimeWire, Bittorrent and BitComent were being used for VARIOUS copyright infringing purposes. It would have been a different story if the editor's responded. Your first mistake is that you MUST learn to Never use P2P File Sharing software to infringe copyrighted Software or Literary Works. That is stealing! Read this response. No mention of the 15 year old minor girl downloading that Anime Movie or that "Harry Potter" book. ( Harry Potter was NEVER available as a E-Book until AFTER this article was published on CNET).
