What’s the definition of legal p2p? It appears to me that the phrase legal translates into a DRM ridden file that is only partially complete, or at best a good sample of what your actually looking for. Alternatively legal may mean that the files your looking for don’t exist at all. Let’s not lie to ourselves, p2p users don’t want legal, they want DRM free files for cheap or next to nothing.
However, the misleading term legal is thrown around the bittorrent scene and surfaced again yesterday at P2PSeek.com.
The P2P Search Engine encompasses over 200 P2P, music, and video web sites, including top P2P industry news portals, blogs, forums, and companies. Sites include all member companies of the Distributed Computing Industry Association ( http://dcia.info ).
That doesn’t sound very appealing to me, but I intend to research the engine in more detail in the next few days. The problem is that with so many illegal alternatives a ‘legal’ alternative just isn’t going to cut it.
