Phatbot, a mischievous P2P spamming tool, appears to to have taken hold much has a dormant virus would in a large population of PCs around the world.  Not a unique concept but one that has taken a while for the hackers to master (if indeed master they have).  The response of course should be a "kind" P2P agent that can be let loose on the network in order to seek and destroy such evil code.  The arms battle continues...

So when are you breaking the law in file sharing?  The US economy will never remain dominate if this legal crap persists....

Recording industry will seek out P2P file sharing users and sue them.

Is it when you download an MP3?  What if you own the vinyl?  What about if you expose MP3 files to the network?  What if you own the vinyl, and you share the file?  Is it the sharing that violates the law, or is it the downloading of a shared file for a track for which you do not own the vinyl?  And who is breaking the law - the sharer or the downloader?  And when I say vinyl, I include any other legally purchased media.

Last ditch attempt by the diseased "establishment" to fight back against P2P file sharing.

Some sensible lawmakers on the ruling that sets P2P network providers free. Clearly the makers of a gun cannot be held responsible for the killing...though tenuous the link surely is....and another report here.

Fascinating window into the mind of humanity - or at least that lonely part connected to the largest network known to man.
