Just a snippet from the SANS Digest:

"Used to share!?"  Shameful!


The hacker group is "Cult of the Dead Cow".

Yes Murray, the technology will be used in support of the illegal 
duplication and distribution of copyright materials, I am sure.  Just as 
FTP, Usenet, and other methods have been so used.

So, do what you can to catch the "criminals" in the act.

But do not sully the concept of "sharing", or attack the concept of 
products that enhance sharing, per se.  How sad that "sharing", now, seems 
to have "negative-first" connotation.
