    I need to know if there is a website that will download large files, burn
    them to cd or dvd, and mail them to me. Has anyone heard of such a place. I
    know of some sites(gaming sites) that will let you pick files from their own
    servers and mail them to you but I need them to go to other sites for the
    files.

    Any company running this sort of service as a commercial enterprise runs the
    risk of being royally shafted by the courts for breaching copyright law. It
    may well be that the majority of files being sent for burning aren't
    copyright-protected, and there is always a risk that someone will send them
    (or point them to) a copyrighted file, they burn it, send it out and are
    subsequently sued by the RIAA or its local equivalent.

    Why would the recording industry care about copyrighted software?

    The OP talked about 'files' as well as gaming sites, so it was a reasonable
    assumption, given the volume of files actively being shared, and the high
    percentage of audio files against software, to put 2 and 2 together and get
    4. It goes without saying that this is a fatal mistake on Usenet!

    Yes, huge files and gaming sites, not one mention of music was there?

    >assumption, given the volume of files actively being shared, and the high


    Never assume.
