Who here can remember napster back in the day? Did you use the original napster? There are tons of p2p now a days. Why did the creator of napster get sued and these other clients don't?

I remember it, back in the day :o) I thought it was the coolest thing on the planet that I could download songs. I think the other guys don't get sued because there are copywrite warnings all over the place...

It was the coolest! I think most of us had dial up which really sucked though.

napster kept a whole lot of it's songs on a central server, the others don't. the others, they just connect user's computers. the individual pc's swap songs among each other using hash codes to find songs. the other clients just keep the hash codes in their servers, a series of numbers. that's not illeagal. the new guys are traffic cops, no more.
