File sharing: Is BitTorrent next?

The celebrations continue amongst the US Recording Industry as they swoop down on so-called illegal file-sharers.

And they don't wait long and expand their raids on global music pircay and suspicions mount that BitTorrent, another "fie-sharing" application might be the next big target.

But it is not that easy, and a Taiwan and Korea ruling has shown that legality is still an issue.

Now, other voices also ask more questions. Mercury News runs quite an interesting piece putting forward the conclusion that piracy won't go away. "Online music piracy may indeed make music free. Piracy might simply be impossible to stop, despite the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark ruling earlier this week against Internet file-swapping sites."

Congratulations on this finding. It is nothing new for those who follow this blog, but still, we need more voices of similar nature.
