Uh? How long does it take to use up all your investors money? I say 3 months.
Re: Uh? I have an odd feeling it will be shorter.
Just call it a hunch.

History will repeat itself Remember when the old Napster tried to implement filters to block out "unlicenced" content?
They tried and tried, but could not implement truely effective filters. People will always find ways around it.
Shutting iMesh down would be the only way to prevent people from using it to share "unlicenced" content. Filters just don't work.
Re: History will repeat itself No whats causing decay in america is the fact that large corporations have control of this country. For instance, the MPAA is trying to outlaw any hardware device that isn't 'approved' (licensed) by them. This is nothing more than a money grab. The RIAA and the MPAA should be forbidden from filing these 'john doe' lawsuites. Maybe then they'll rethink their business models.
The poor versus the rich This is one of the few things the poor can do to try make things even for themselves against the rich.
Personally, I'd rather have people "stealing" IP than out robbing or killing people.
Digital crime? This is a joke. Who cares? It doesn't matter in the grand scheme of life. Let people have their fun. Companies, "stars", athletes, these are all people that we don't need in society, they are compensated to well for too little. We need to get back to the basics.
It's all good Wait till someone makes a version called Imesh I++ Then we'll use that.

Re: It's all good sounds just like Napster all over again. Face it the RIAA/MPAA really doesn't want the word download anywhere in the description of distribution, iTunes, at al, not withstanding.

Re: It's all good They don't even want ITumes unless Steve Jobs will up the price Apple charges so RIAA, et all can get a piece of IPod sales.
Bottom line, it's a money grab. RIAA, the record companies and the world at large have long known they are putting out CDs with 1 or 2 good songs and the rest is filler. They pressure the artists to spin out the worst kind of swill so they can spread the good material over multiple CDs for the length of the contract. What for? Money. Remember when Perot ran for President. His big phrase was "follow the money".
Now (and for a few years back), their fat, dumb, and happy business model is under attack. Consumers (the reason these companies are in business) are saying "Wait a second. We want proper value for our money." The record companies are not interested. So the people start stealing so they can create the compilations they desire. Several companies try to create a pay-per-song model, and get sued out of existence. Apple comes up with one (they have the money to withstand a legal battle) and it is accepted...for a while. Next thing you know, record companies switch back into the greed mode.
Follow the money. Always follow the money.
Televideo ergo sum.....I watch TV, therefore I am.
Re: It's all good Well said bigunk ... I agree with your comment totally
