Can someone exapain to me why newgroups protect users (from copyright lawsuits) better than alternative P2P methods? I understand that they encourage downloading without the need to upload, which in itself is safer. But do they keep user's uploads/download more anonymous? If so, how?
Also, I am currently a Oink user, and im mainly interested in music. I especially like that Oink always has the newest releases, especially by lesser known bands. In this respect, would newgroups be a good option for me?
