P2P per se isn't illegal and even if it were I can see cases where it could be used
For example if I buy a Movie for playing on a DVD player on a laptop and I'm in Europe - why should I have to put up with the B/S saying I can't play that movie whilst I'm visiting the US -- what's a laptop for -- MOBILE computing of course.
So I for one don't treat "bypassing regional encoding" for DVD's THAT I'VE PAID for a crime even if I have to get the cracks from "The Ship" or elsewhere.
I agree...I also agree with the folks who say you don't buy software...you rent it
They have a point...just look at all the things that we can't do with the software we paid for...
