Question by Nick2006: If I join a usenet group and pay recurring member fees, would downloading copyrighted songs still be illegal?
Can I still be sued in this instance?
response to first answer: then why does usenet.com advertise this stuff
“Join us today and start building your music collection!”
“to join the BEST newsgroup provider on the Internet and download all the cool MP3s your heart desires!”

Yes, it’s still illegal. You can’t legitimise stealing someones copyrighted property by paying a fee to someone else.
