So eDonkey, or the parent company thereof, has agreed to pay $30M to the RIAA to avoid prosecution for copyright infringment. It seems to me that the recording industry has been quietly developing an additional revenue stream that probably dwarfs music sales by just suing the crap out of everyone. I wonder how long that will go on before people start paying attention and realize that this amounts to extortion?

At any rate, visiting eDonkey.com gets your IP address logged. Oh no! I am so scared. I don’t use P2P and have never used the eDonkey software or network so what do they hope to do with my IP?

The eDonkey2000 Network is no longer available.

If you steal music or movies, you are breaking the law.

Goodbye Everyone.
