For those of you who are familiar with Bit Torrent there is an interesting surprise on http://thepiratebay.org if you search the name shopnotes. Try it.

Yeah, there is some hot blonde in a bikini name Val who wants me to call her!

OH…... DID YOU MEAN ALL THE FREE MAGAZINE VOLUMES?

Cause that’s cool too!

Thanks, Rufus.

Seems a bit unethical to me. It’s one thing to share an article once in a while with a fellow woodworker, but to publish whole magazines that others are making a living with—- something strikes me as odd. I’m not sure how it works with magazines, but when people publish books/music/movies, etc. that they have not written then the author is not going to get a royalty for that sale – hence making less of a living.

Just strikes me as not so right—- the side shots don’t do much for me either.

Just my two cents.

(perhaps I’m being the sensitive one on this one.)

Off shore postings sights are very difficult to be able to enforce copyrights. It is one of the good/bad characteristics of the Internet. As Betsy pointed out, posting this type of material for downloading is odd and has a negative impact on the publishing industry.

I have an even greater concern when it comes to sights like this- or any file sharing sight- viruses, spyware and rootkits.

Beware of things that lurk in these files. Your precious computer data can be at risk.

I live in a country where people have no problem with taking a book to a copy shop and getting a photocopy made of the entire book!

That is one of the big issues with China right now too, they don’t recognize patents, copyrights, etc. Which is why they can produce things so cheap…

beware of pirates… companies that own the rights to things are going after those of us who get them unethically.

yeah, this is not legal by any means, and IS most definitely breaking copyrights laws… the price of online information…
