Bandwidth Theft ~ Don't Do It
 
Sent: 6/27/2004 7:26 AM
Ok we all know about copywrite theft or should know about it but there is also another type of  theft that of  Bandwidth something that all internet users should know about and refrain from and any MSM managers should make sure there members do not do or MSM will shut any group found doing so

What Is Bandwidth?
 
If you copy a picture from another group or site on the internet, and paste directly to your post, it is called bandwidth theft and the site you took it from is charged for your use of it. Many sites allow you to use their graphics, but they expect you to download them to your computer and then upload them into your own server space.
MSN Groups do not worry about bandwidth theft from one group to another because you do not pay for bandwidth. But out on the net many sites have limitations and pay for their bandwidth and your use of it may cause them to pay extra or have their web pages disabled for awhile because they have exceeded the limit. I'm sure you have gone to a site and expected to see what they have to offer, only to read that the site exceeded their bandwidth limit. MSN will act on complaints of bandwidth theft made against the group by owners of websites outside of MSN Groups. A Group found in violation of bandwidth theft will be closed pending further investigation. If the Group is found to have taken part in bandwidth theft, the group will be shut down immediately and permanently.
How To Avoid Using Someone Else's Bandwidth
Always download or save these pictures to your computer, then add them to your posts. If the information is accessed off of another website, it is bandwidth theft.
If the information comes from your hard drive or another group you belong to, then it is not bandwidth theft. Thank you Managers of My Specials Angels.
