"According to Frank Creighton, the Recording Industry
Association of America's chief anti-piracy officer, the community
of file swappers that doesn't trade through a central server just
isn't enough of a problem to warrant the efforts leveled at
independent OpenNap and other Napster clones. Citing network
frailties, privacy issues, and low adoption rates, he said his
organization is watching the protean network but isn't yet
bothering to crack down on members."
"We have a strategy, but we have yet to implement it,"
Creighton said, adding that the group could change tactics if the
Gnutella service improves."
"The statement goes to the heart of how far the record industry
and other copyright holders are willing to go to track down
individual online file swappers--and how much anonymity music
traders can retain online."
