    My friend is starting a job at a graphic design firm. He has a few pieces of warez on his computer. When i say warez, i mean illegal serials. Should I tell him to leave his network card disabled or should he be ok? He uses a new macbook.

    downloading at work wouldn't be bright at all; but as for what's on your computer--if it isn't the property of the firm, they aren't allowed to snoop on it. so he should be fine.

    downloading. period. you're at work to work; they monitor your bandwidth and what you're up to. downloading anything, even your fantasy football documentation, can land you in trouble in many offices.

    also if he is taking his laptop to work and using his companys intrnet connection to download stuff, the company can look on his laptop to see if he has put anything from the company on the laptop that he has, like Auslander said it is a bad thing to do as far as downloading, that is one of the things that people get fired from thire jobs, surfing the net and downloading from the net, tell your friend to be smart and don't start, good luck
