Internet rebels on Tuesday began testing a new weapon that threatens to scuttle efforts to stop illicit online music swapping.
Internet privacy activists at Freenet Project posted word on their website that they were looking for savvy programmers to test a refined version "darknet" software designed to keep file swappers anonymous.
Freenet's call for stealth software test pilots came slightly more than a month after the United States Supreme Court struck a blow for the entertainment industry by equating Internet sharing of music with "garden variety theft".
Freenet's new software was heralded as "scalable," which means it would enable large numbers of stealth users to freely share files online, Doug Tygar, a computer professor at the University of California, Berkeley, said.


I see more mention of illegal files sharing than the real purpose of freenet which I tested a while back folks , and that is to allow folks in countries hostile to democracy to communicate securely without being attacked by goverments that do not respect human rights

Lets not let the file nazis/Cartels, steal ordinary folks rights to live a free life with this industry propaganda.
