Re: Grokster?

If you don't want spyware, dont install any P2P file sharing programs. SIMPLE. There have been so many articles on this in the last few months, I can't believe some of you continue to use these programs....

Thank you to the department of the obvious for pointing that out. You really ought to volunteer yourself to the government's side for the CIPA case currently being tried. That way you would get another opportunity to stand up in court and smugly say something like "If you don't want any money from the government for your library, then you don't have to install government filters on your internet computers."

or just install a open source P2P prog where everyone who uses it can check the code for what it does, Gnucleus for example.

doesnt matter to me, i only use a fully legal P2P system that has no copyright covered material on it, i use Furthurnet, and all we trade on there are live recordings of bands who *allow* live recording of their concerts. Pretty big list of artists who allow it, and more coming around all the time.
