Protecting yourself and your computer from video piracy

Athens MidDay Reporter Ryan Basford reports on how video piracy can harm your computer and your community.

Luke Streuig, Customer Support Manager at Frognet, provides tips on how to protect your computer from viruses obtained through file sharing.

With more and more people sharing files over the internet, more and more viruses are being spread across the web. And as Ryan Basford told us, file sharing can not only hurt your computer, but your community and yourself.

Just in case you're not sure what is and is not legal, The Motion Picture Association of America has a list of all federal and state laws regarding piracy.

There are many programs out there to protect your computer from viruses. Some can be bought in stores and some can be downloaded at no charge. Visit www.free.grisoft.com for the AVG antivirus program Streuig mentioned above.
