You will see it also contains very useful and invaluable information pertaining to legal aspects of P2P useage plus the risks to your computer and your personal data and infections ....

A selection of quotes from it ......
Quote :
Besides legal risks, the use of file-sharing programs may inadvertently let others copy private files you never intended to share. It's a good idea to check this whenever you start P2P (Programs) to ensure that you're not sharing your personal information, tax returns, family photos or private documents.

Moreover, you may also unwittingly download a virus, spyware, child pornography or facilitate a security breach. There are mislabeled files which can conceal malicious content


Quote :
Parents may not be aware that their children have downloaded file-sharing software on the family computer and that they may have exchanged games, videos, music, pornography, or other material that may be inappropriate for them. Also, because other peoples' files sometimes are mislabeled, kids unintentionally may download these files. In addition, kids may not understand the security and other risks involved with file-sharing and may install the software incorrectly, giving anyone on the Internet access to the family's private computer files.

Admin felt it appropriate to add this comment
