what i want to do is share MY media files(movies i made etc...)with a friend who also has a broadband connection but lives some distance from me. and the files are to large to use any other method as it wouldnt be ecconomical for me. nothing illegal with that is there
Just because file sharing networks are commonly used to breach copyright it doesn't necessarily follow that when someone asks a perfectly legitimate question that it should be assumed they are criminals.
gio2710 just asked about file sharing to pass large files to friends/family without the need to post CDs.
Maybe the 'music industry' would be happier if the Internet consisted of web pages on floppy discs that we buy one at a time.
if both you and your friend get MSN messenger from click here and sign up to it (free when i did it, believe it still is), you can use it to share files. as far as i am aware there is no size limit on the file you can 'send' to a contact using it.
I agree with Tim1964, we shouldn't be automatically suspicious of people (not the way of the forum!). I was a little confused with the links to the articles at first, but then realised what was being implied.
Also the link by anchor is 1 I recommend but I haven't come across anything with higher capacity.
