Evil, I tells you! EVIL!
Look at this! The South By Southwest festival is offering almost three and a half gigsworth (metric) of free MP3s. All of them DRM-free! And what better way to spread all this legal music - legally - than by Bit Torrent?
Is most of the music shite? Yeah... well... probably a good percentage of it is. But that's not the point. It's a perfect example of the technology working perfectly - nobody is responsible for the massive bandwidth drain of offering something for free, Bit Torrent works as a collaboration, with everyone who wants it and everyone who has it working together to spread the load around. It's a perfect example of why completely shutting down the technology because some people (ahem) use it for not-so-legal means from time to time is a ridiculous over reaction. It makes as much sense, as my conservative friends like to point out, as punishing gun companies when bad people kill people with their products.
