MORE, Pirates Again!

Sorry, spoke too soon!

The site I mentioned earlier today

is only a search engine, that promises to get you a free copy download if:

1. You give them all your info, like address, email address, and pertinent numbers when you "Register." If you do give them all that info, it can be used to send you spam, or steal your identity, but they don't seem to mention those options. Many pirate sites today are only trolling for customer information and this seems to be another one.

2. You can only download if you swear you OWN the copyright or have permission to copy the file. In their terms of agreement, quoted below, they say the downloader MUST have the copyright holder's permission to download, but I doubt they check if you lie about it.

Also apologies to who registered the domain, but have NO control over the content of the site.

Here's the "Official" terms of service:
