I live on campus in a residence hall, and they’ve got really strict rules on file sharing and they can take away your internet or computer if you violate them, but i’m not sure whether or not rapidshare/megaupload are legal.
My guess is that you already knew that downloading any form of music without purchase is illegal, but your real question is if you can get caught by downloading from megaupload/rapidshare
Since youre not uploading to any other users and it is a direct download it would be very difficult for the school to know what you are downloading. On the other hand, if you were getting music from bittorrent or p2p network it would be easier for the school to find out based on the traffic generated from uploads as well as connections to other users.
So you dont have much to worry about if you download content from upload sites.
Because there are really huge files that i can’t download unless i use a torrent software. Please tell me if there are any software that i can use to download files from mediafire or megaupload so that even if i turn off my laptop, i can still continue downloading it.
Nope. You need file downloaders like Orbit.
