section overlooks the issues and problems surrounding P2P technology
To put it bluntly, copyright infringement
is a major problem with this technology. Most of the files shared by WinMX
such as animation and music have a copyright. Because youfre able to
receive the files for free, the opportunity to buy the product will become
needless. From this, music releasing companies will receive a great damage
on the sales. As a fact, youfll be able to find the songs which are ranked
on the Oricon chart on WinMX. To prevent this, CD companies released a
copy protect CDfs, but this didnft work out for so long.
Recently, the way to de-protect the copy
guard is going around and become shared on WinMX as before.
Copyright isnft the only problem by law. In WinMX, bunch of porno movies
and pictures are shared. These files could be searched and downloaded
by teenagers. This is a terrible problem and itfs definitely against
Other problem is users moral. WinMX is used for sharing file but in the
users, there is DOM (Download Only Member). DOM just download the files
but they donft share files. This could collapse the file sharing community
