LEEWS - CD/iPhone/Computer?

Postby Me-a Culpa » Sat Apr 03, 2010 6:47 pm

After reading the website, it says that the audio course can be downloaded to an ipod or iphone without copyright issues. However:

"downloading to computer files is a form of copying that may disable ability to listen to certain CDs on a computer. The CD will then operate only on a regular player."

For anyone that have used the audio course, since I don't even have a CD player, can they be "played" from a computer like a regular CD?

…..is this just a "minor" threat?

I really have no idea, but I got mine used on amazon for about half of that, Im sure you can find one for a pretty good price.

I've heard that it helps and I've heard that its a waste time. About half and half really. The price tag is steep though, even used. You might be able to snag a copy off of eBay when it gets closer to August.

You can't listen to it while you run. You need to refer to the book and you need to write things down.

I had the same plan and it was a no-go.

I have it on my iPod. It is useful only if you have gone through the course once before with the papers in front of you.

It said something about once you do so, the CDs will not work. Is this true for you?

I'm thinking it's to prevent torrents... and a bunch of BS, but I have no problem paying for it, if I can play it on my computer. Ebay is just a little less... I've got no problem paying $160 even if it help just a little.

Mine still work. You can definitely find it pretty cheap, hell Ill probably sell mine.

I dont know how much it helped me, but I did pretty well. I think a lot of people that are going to spend the time to do Leews are the same ones that are going to spend a lot of time on law school in general.
