Lime Wire scrambles to avoid annihilation - 0 views

  •  
    What do technologies which main function provides a platform for the illegal sharing resort to once the crack down starts? Even though these companies did not directly share the copyrighted sources, they did provide the technology for their users to do so. In the case of Lime Wire, they seem to be choosing plain ignorance of the law to continue their open networks. They have countless years of promises to music executives to create filters, and screening for pirated downloads, but have constantly chose to not follow through. Once again they seem to be choosing the, "we will do it now," stance, but it seems it may just be empty promises once again and the ultimate end to the most popular site for illegal music sharing.

    This article eloquently discusses the importance of the internet in our lives and addresses issues of the digital divide.

    Internet use has become so woven into everyday life that some technology experts say online access should be legally protected, even to the point of considering it a human right.

    Following on from the BBC's survey of 27,000 people in 26 countries which resulted in 79% of adults regarding internet access as a human right, David Vaile from the Cyberspace Law and Policy Centre and Brett Solomons, formerly of GetUp and now AccessNow.org, have both put their weight behind this approach.

    Some countries already include internet access as a consumer legal right and other countries regard it as a human right.
