The Hunt For "axxo"

This guy is a legend in the bit torrent scene although to some he is a pariah, great read whatever your view.

To Hollywood executives, he's public enemy number one. To film fans around the world, he's a modern-day Robin Hood. As the internet's most prolific pirate makes his 1,000th illegal film download available to the masses, Tim Walker investigates the mysterious figure known only as aXXo

At 8.40am on Monday 15 December, a new post appeared on an internet forum called the Darkside Release Group. "Darkside_RG" is a clearing house for internet pirates, a site dedicated to the online redistribution of movies, music and videogames. Its members happily spend their days sharing and discussing their ill-begotten booty on the site's many message boards.

The question of aXXo's identity is undoubtedly of interest to the authorities, but it's also an abiding obsession for his fans. One Canadian documentary film-maker, for example, is working on a film entitled Searching for aXXo.

The article above ha a few minor puff peices for bit torrent fans but whats not discussed is that downloading on p2p such as winmx is not illegal but using bit torrent to do the same thing is.. why ?

The answer lies in the way the files are shared and using bit torrent you have to upload as well as download when your obtaining content and thus you breach the law regarding the "right of copy" (copyright), on a normal p2p this is not the case when downloading and thus in law you are safe as long as you dont sell or share what you have obtained.

He or she is probably the only child or youngest child of a top RIAA executive.  Irony seems to find its way into everything.
Downloading is an addiction I do not want to give up.
