Kazaa Lite shut down by Sharman Networks

Kazaa Lite K++, the spyware-free version of the popular file-sharing application, was ordered offline yesterday by Kazaa's owner Sharman Networks. On what grounds? Ironically, for copyright infringement. (The K++ downloads are gone from the official site, but the latest version is still mirrored here.)

Kazaa is the most robust peer-to-peer application I've ever seen, and I've seen plenty. Among its innovations are multi-sourced downloads, automatic resume, searching by genre (and other metadata), and "supernodes." And it's getting big fast. 54,214 users online as I type this, sharing 22,250GB of files. (Sorry, Windows only.)

Scour Exchange shuts down tomorrow morning.

Scour Exchange shuts down tomorrow morning. The fastest, most reliable source for peer-to-peer video sharing went bankrupt weeks ago, and is finally killing its service permanently. (Guess I'll have to start paying for movie tickets again.)
