there are still the less common p2p programs like imesh light, warez p2p and other less common programs that aren't getting shut down to use.

mikee hold on waynejkruse has a very good point. From what I know there are 3 networks Gnutella1, Gnutella2, Edonk. If the most popular clients for these networks are shut down it will affect all the clients (less hosts for files).

but bittorrent works in a completely different way, you cant just "shut down" a bittorrent network.

true but you just get the IP and send a cease and desist with bittorrrent. And if they don't listen then their are banned from their ISP.

speaking of ISP's banning, what about the TCA of 1996 (america only) states that telecommunication shall be available with unrestricted access for an affordable price.

Default Grokster to be reborn by year's end

Grokster is set to be reborn as a fully legitimate P2P service before the end of the year, The Register has learned.

Sources familiar with the service's operations revealed that Grokster 3G, as the new service will be branded, is scheduled to be released as a public beta before 31 December. Currently, the Grokster web site simply says the software is "coming soon".

The new software is understood to be derived from the code that Mashboxx is developing for its legal but as-yet-unlaunched P2P service.

Indeed, confirming earlier speculation that Grokster and Mashboxx were in acquisition talks, our source claimed the two reached an agreement to combine forces in June this year - just a month before the US Supreme Court was to rule that P2P companies who promote copyright infringement could be brought to book by copyright holders.

Mashboxx is believed to have initiated the settlement talks between Grokster and both the Recording Industry ***. of America (RIAA) and the Motion Picture ***. of America (MPAA) before the Supremes' ruling. That settlement saw Grokster go offline this week, its homepage replaced with a message admitting its status as an illegal operation.

"There are legal services for downloading music and movies," the page reads. "This service is not one of them."

Mashboxx, meanwhile, is working on its own P2P software, which incorporates Snocap's tracking system to detect what files are being shared and whether the musical content contained therein has been licensed for sharing. The company is nearing the release of its first public beta, the source told The Register.

For the immediate future, Mashboxx and Grokster will remain separate brands, even though both are now run by the same company and the two clients are, to all intents and purposes, the same. Grokster has the mind-share, but is tarnished by its past. Mashboxx, on the other hand, has yet to establish itself as a P2P player. Mashboxx is also in the business of providing core technology to other P2P services, and that may be how the brand is exclusively positioned in the future.

iMesh unveils legitimate file-swapping service
After free trial period, users must pay to download songs
Monday, November 07, 2005
Dawn C . Chmielewski
SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS

One of the former bete noires of Internet file-swapping, iMesh, has been reborn as a strictly legit online file-swapping service.

This music-industry-approved version of iMesh manages to capture the guilty pleasure that is file-swapping. You can find virtually any song or video clip you can name.

And for a limited trial period, it’s absolutely free.

This is the feat that the original fileswapping phenomenon, Napster, failed to pull off with its October 2003 reintroduction as a licensed music service.

But aficionados of file-swapping services will doubtless find frustration with the reincarnated iMesh, because you can’t burn popular songs to a CD without first buying the tracks. And you can’t buy any music yet — although iMesh says that’s only days away.

Even that long-time staple of file-swapping — community elements that let you chat with other people online — is unavailable for another 30 days.

iMesh will remain free for the next month or two, as it attempts to coax its 5 million active visitors to download the latest version of the software, which contains new features — including those designed to prevent music piracy.

Within 60 days, iMesh plans to begin charging a monthly subscription fee of $6.95 for access to its online catalog.

As with other subscription services, such as RealNetworks’ Rhapsody or Yahoo! Music, this flat monthly fee entitles you to listen to an unlimited number of tracks on your computer. You can even take songs with you on a portable music player, so long as it uses Microsoft’s Plays for Sure technology.

If you plan to burn a copy of Fiona Apple’s new release, Extraordinary Machine, to CD, you’ll need to purchase the individual tracks for 99 cents each.

The new iMesh bears a striking resemblance to Apple’s iTunes store — right down to its look.

Starting up the program brings up an opening page that highlights new releases, such as the new recordings by Franz Ferdinand and Cheryl Crow; and lists the most popularly downloaded albums and songs. It even recommends playlists by genre, say, British Invasion II Britpop

collection.

If you’re looking for a music service that makes sophisticated music recommendations, based on your listening habits, you’ll be disappointed. As with all other file-swapping applications, you’ll need to know what you want when you go online.

There are significant differences between iMesh and other online music services.

iMesh remains connected to the venerable Gnutella file-swapping network, so you’ll also find up to 20 million songs that are free for the taking.

For anybody who abandoned Napster when the recording industry embarked on its campaign of suing people for copyright infringement, this is a welcome return to the freedom of try-it-before-you-buy-it.
