P2P IS HERE TO STAY! Everytime the RIAA goes after them and shut one of these sites and programs down, another one comes to take it place. and Copy Protection, LOL give me a 12 year old and I'll show you how strong copy protection is. these Mega Corperations need to realize that their side has several thousand engineers with millions of dollars spent to protect these CD's. and the other side has punk kids who eat copy protction for breakfast and do it for nill, nada, zip, zero! As for the P2P companies, well we outsource everything else in this country, i guess it was only matter of time before this would move as well.
DOWN WITH RIAA
UP WITH EFF

P2P is going distributed, which means there does not need to be any centralized server.
What is the point of a P2P company anyway? How can you make money from people who won't even pay a buck for a song?
The future of sharing is Freenet.

I don't think P2P is going anywhere, I just think it will be in the hands of open source apps instead of corporations trying to leech a profit off of people pirating materials.
