Imagine that...Brilliant may actually be able to 'shut down' the peer to peer network that was otherwise unstoppable!
What is to say that Brilliant won't install something to render a person's computer that is using Kazaa useless? What happens if Brilliant and Kazaa part ways and have ill feelings for one another?
Too many what ifs
I don't appreciate any company hiding their software under a different company's software just to access your computer. I guess that's why they call it spyware...do you think ZoneAlarm or a personal firewall can stop the Brilliant code from running without your consent? Unfortunately, if they do, that code is still present on your system.
I hate it when Netscape installs all that AOL junk (Yes, I know AOL bought Netscape, but it should ask if I want to install it).
