What is the purpose/advantage of registering? How is it going to be helpful and to whom.

Registration is only open for random and short periods of time through the year. You sign up, you get access to the contents. It’s free, so if you would use the site, it’s worth it. BUT… I quit piracy awhile back, after switching mainly to linux, but, I’m not holding it against anyone. Wink

Is Demonoid for pirating only? Or, does it have a legitimate use also? I have let posts about it slide until now because I thought there was some legitimate use for it. But someone reported this post which makes me think a little bit more about my decision.

@ Ebony: I don't want to promote any illegal activity. And if Ashraf wants to can the topic or my comment, that's cool. However, can I add that while I imagine that the majority of d/l-ers are invariably using it for such purposes, there is a good proportion of things on there that are not illegal. I have been able to get some really good research articles through it (I study for a masters degree part-time). That's what I use it for, anyway. Personally, I think only fools would risk their comps and possible legal action on illegal downloads. There's a heap of freeware/open-source software to fill almost any niche. I just don't see the need.

@Ashraf:  It's illegal to put illegal content on Demonoid, don't worry.  I'm sure that the person that put that Toy Story 3 DVD rip up owns the rights to it. Wink

Oh, the site that was :(

Thanks PR for the response.

The purpose for my original question was so that the poster would give the use and benefit of the site.

Just as in the freeware posting, and tell us a little bit about its purpose.

I had no idea about the illegal part. I just did not want to have to go out of look for the purpose. Was just hoping poster that post re sites and freeware would give more of an explanation.

BUT as always, you came through.Wink

@ Ebony: Aw shucks. I guess it's like so many things in life: it can be used for either good or bad purposes. In itself it isn't a bad thing. In fact, far from it (in an ideal world). It's just about how people choose to use it …

Just my opinion, but I think “illegal” downloads have to be judged on a case by case basis.

Example: I use a CPAP machine (it's for Sleep Apnea – you stop breathing in your sleep). XXXX CPAP Company charges $5000 (yes, five thousand dollars) for the machine. It's a pretty sophisticated machine, but it's hard imagining how it could possibly be worth that much.

Anyway, after spending $5000 on their machine, they want another $200 from the patient for software and a “smart card” reader to simply print a report of the data generated by the machine.Yell In many cases this data might be critical to the patients health. Also in many cases (like mine) a patient can't afford another $200 for a simple report writer!Frown

So……I could (but haven't yet) download the software “illegally” on the internet and buy a reader for about 20 bucks.

If I do it, who is the more evil here…me for “stealing” the software, or XXXX CPAP Company for screwing patients out of $200 or worse, preventing patients from access to data that could literally save their life? (Many Sleep Apnea patients die from heart related problems.)Confused

OK….I'll get off my soapbox now and go think about whether I sacrifice my health for my morals,  sacrifice my morals for my health, or maybe just find the 200 bucks somewhere to pay the #$%^& CPAP Company.
