    Default IP Adress logged!

    I used to use eDonkey to download songs, but one day, on the frontpage, it said "The US Supreme Court declared it illegal to download licensed music, your IP address has been logged", and forced me to uninstall eDoneky and I did, since I couldn't use it anymore. I'm fine without being able to download music, but does this mean I can't download manga either?! Especially licensed manga, like D.Gray Man, Ouran Host Club and other mangas??? I can't live without manga! I live in Canada, but does it still affect me??? and I really wanna download and read the latest chapters, 'cause the companies that licensed these mangas are taking their sweet time translating these chapters. Please help.

    Well ethically and legally yes, you can't download those licensed manga, but who cares, nobody has been sued for downloading manga as far as I know.

    Did anyone else get their IP address logged? I mean, didn't everyone who uses eDonkey get it? All my friends use limewire and other things so it didn't happen to them.

    Thanks for the members who replied
    But can anyone explain to me just what the hell it means to have your IP Address Logged??
    Can they watch EVERYTHING you're downloading, like music AND manga??
    or just copyrighted music???

    I wouldn't worry too much about getting sued. Unless you share several terabytes worth of material. That's what they busted those other people for. Not for downloading but for uploading, and even then it was ridiculous amounts.

    yeah, I should really calm myself. I'm in Canada, why am I worrying so damn much? Thanks for your time in making all the replies.
    Oh yeah, my friend got her IP Address logged too, but her sister is a computer whiz and she gets in and downloads music all the time 'cause she can get around it, somehow. I was like WHOAH!

    What I would suggest if u want to twart the legal issues is to use an ip changer. You can find those anywhere on the web. Also, if u only use one ip, I would suggest to use the Ip address (not including port number) as a search query on your computer. If anything shows up, back it up in a different file where you kno where it is and delete the original file you found. (Try not to do: Try using regedit and search the ip address there too, but remember to back up your original registry if u wish to delete anything that refers to your ip.) If anything should happen in a wrong way, restore the original stuff to the folders/registry where you found them. I myself hav a default ip changer, but it came with the computer. Ip changers work wonders as it makes it hard for people to ip ban you.
