Usenext – experience !?

I would be interested, have the positive or negative experiences with Usenext.

Then there's also the argument: Illegal. In what context is duese illegality? What requirements of illegality be me "attached to"If I conclude one Usenext subscription?

I would like to test the offer with 30 days free. What should I observe?

@ Mods: please to closure if Usenext does not conform to your requirements. Just want some advice to know what I could to let me in.


Usenext is not illegal per se. However, it is a playground for illegal sales. Since Usenext should know this by now, one can prove which aid at best. They exist but for so long, so that with the evidence or enforcement of judgments will be hard.

If you caught yourself (there is also honeypot accounts), you naturally have to bear all the consequences. Even if you "innocent" at the end are, should remain as Risoko the driving of money and legal fees.


First of many thanks to @Aries,

my motives are quite different than many people think now. I do not plan my films "suck"Even interest me music virtually only on a purchased CD.

I just want time away from the Google universe where surely be kept from me things because they are not relevant in the ranking. And I have heard of the so-called Usenet, or UseNeXT as the largest provider.

Edit: I can see that (in accordance to your tax declaration) so that additions "geshared" are thus my IP can appear even when illegal actions, even though I'm innocent? Is that how similar handled in this SETI project?

SETI Procedure: "This project uses the computing power of many computers on the Internet, provided by users voluntarily. You can download the SETI @ home program that downloads data from the server at UC Berkeley and these analyzes (with the lowest priority) in the background as soon as computing capacity is available on the computer." Quote from Wikipedia


Usenet is a service on the Internet, which is older than the WWW. It can be compared with forums like these. There, called newsgroups. Usenext is a vendor that provides this technology for paying users.


@Aries: have edited my post, please check the times.


In principle, one subscribed newsgroups or joins them. For example, invites you all M $ newsgroups and has years of reading, but you then uses newsreader as Newsleecher. A slightly wicked Touch gets the Usenet through the binary groups, but also legal content such as drivers etc. spread over this way.
I have worked before the Internet professionally (as an employee of one of the largest IT companies) newsgroups to obtain information, but this is already some decades back : D

A Usenet subscription is not illegal per se, illegal is the download of copyrighted data. The Usenet provider (UseNext) only provides access to Usenet ago i.d.R. he did not hosted. The newsgroups are provided by Intel, M $, HP, IBM, etc. binaries (ie illegal content) be hosted on any server (to my knowledge) spread across the globe, which could then, for example, Server be at Uni's. What I have read so far, will provide particularly that of 'Copyright - afflicted' pursued content, as users of Usenet but you read i.d.R. Data, you do not provides (such as eMule & Co.)!
fallen into disrepute the Usenet is also the fact that many Usenet providers advertise with access to binaries.
This can sometime sometimes pure Downloader Usenet but also identify with one click hosters, is surely only a matter of time.
This is all rather theoretical by information from the media (and here in particular the c't be mentioned - subscription for 89), practically I have used the Usenet in the company and at home (UNIX workstation as a home workstation), the but is already back about 15 years ago, because as long as I'm already retired ....


You can SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) not compare with Usenet. There, via BOINC (see my logo + profile) provided data from the Berkeley University + the Arecibo radio telescope available for evaluation. In addition you must also be a member on various projects. There are no movies, music or any other illegal things for download.


@Werner: this is already clear to me. I meant also more likely if such be at Seti free computing capacity queried in the background / provided. I'm not sure, but it is nevertheless also handled similarly in all torrents (?). The order will download speed data split across different user computer. So I share parts of any downloads on my account and I have no knowledge as to the identity data that could potentially arise.


SETI all users get the same data from the respective projects. Also, each user knows exactly what information he gets. The data is loaded via BOINC evaluated and the evaluation sent back. So a very different approach.


The downloads from the Usenet usually come from large server farms, which are usually also mirrored.
So it's more like a FTP access and not as in file sharing ....


Hello Mark,
if you binary groups are not interested, you can also test free Usenet provider.
There used to be "not binary" News Server e.g. even with Telekom, NetCologne, Telefonica and consorts.
Then you have not slide off the danger in the illegal zone.
Paid providers mostly differ only by providing the binary groups and in their time to keep the posts.
Maybe you can pay attention to encrypted connections, but that does not offer all providers.
If you only read posts, you also need no fear "hidden" have downloads.
Binary downloads can, of course, in addition to the "legal" Problems and viruses & Co bring!
Otherwise, there are plenty of Usenet provider surveys to learn who and how much is free of charge and what can!
Articles / offers in certain PC magazines move for my taste always in the gray area, because they advertise free trial phases "great" Usenet providers that you really only needed if you want to download movies, music, e-books, software, images. For this, the article then have naturally then that one is responsible for the use.
For normal read / Communicate If these actually paid access not required.
The providers will also expect that you forget the termination of the free period and then you have yet again costs on the cheek!


First of all thanks for your answers! keep going ausschau times after the free providers. As I said, the media in the form of movies / music does not interest me there.


Hello ,
I strongly advise you, if you want Antu to you, to terminate the testing phase within the 14 days since you otherwise an annual contract on the jaw and it is very bad and annoying because to get out of there.
In addition, please note the following
The website UseNeXT gives you access to the Usenet. Not only thoughts and problems to be replaced, but also data. These data include proprietary data.
Download as copyrighted music or movies on Usenet high, you are liable to prosecution. Even the download is illegal.
The service UseNeXT is, however, perfectly legal. The site is not responsible for the content of users. Delete UseNeXT must copyrighted material only upon request of the rights holder.
Even if you are liable to prosecution with an illegal download, the probability of being caught is relatively low. Only the uploader are at high risk. A real residual risk Downloader is yet.

Hi Peter, please be so kind and give the next time the source of the text of which you from section "The website UseNeXT allows you [...]" have copied!

Because of the said section is from Chip.de entitled: "UseNeXT - this is legal?" of 03.02.2015
It's just fair right?
Otherwise, thank you for your comment, he has still somehow helped a few users.

Best regards
