Okay, I've read in various places that Sharman is either merging with or selling FT to another company who is going to make it a pay service. Has anyone else heard of any of this? Also, is there any way to see if your Kazaa Lite is one of the ones the RIAA distributed (I'm sure most of you have heard of this)? If you haven't, here's the summary...
This isn't Kazaa Lite's fault, but I was wondering if this will persuade KL to become closed source? It would be safer, though it would suck for the DEV aspect."When you go to K-Lites offcial download pages to download K-Lite, you are sent to 3rd party HTTP and FTP servers to actually make the download. What you dont know is that most of those servers are actually RIAA!
Yes, this is a fact. The RIAA is more than willing to pay the high bandwidth prices to support those who download it.
The RIAA has taken Random Nuts source code of K-Lite and made versions of their own that send your IP address, Registry Settings, Hash Values, and a list of all of the files that you upload and download directly to the RIAA central servers at different inteverals." -Sharepro (ESV)
