There Is No Way You Can Shut File-Sharing Down

Vancouver’s Straight published an interesting piece on file-sharing and BitTorrent, with some comments from isoHunt founder Gary Fung.

“File-sharing gives people the freedom to share what they want,” Fung said. “File-sharing is logically the next step in the Internet’s evolution, in the sense that it decentralizes distribution. Anyone that wants to distribute can distribute whatever they want.”

“File-sharing will become more mainstream and all the lawsuits being launched against users or people like us, the technologists, well, we will have to find a way to reconcile our differences,” Fung said. “And find a new means of distributing content not just for independents but for the big companies that are suing us.”

“With any file-sharing site you try to shut down, a new file-sharing site is bound to pop up, and that has happened in the past—with Napster, then Kazaa,” Fung said. “There is no way you can shut file-sharing down.”

So this "means we're looking at a future where ISPs will charge per byte, the way they do with smart phones. If we allow this to happen Canadians will have no choice but to pay MUCH more for less Internet". CRTC I don't think so C*ck Su*kers..

No really, you can shut filesharing down.

In Egypt they're experimenting with a new method called 'being a fascist with a brain the size of a... raisin?'.
