[REBOL] Re: black hawk down

From: carl:cybercraft at: 18-Jan-2002 10:45

As I understand it, (ie - probably wrongly:), the IOS/Morpheus link will enable Morpheus to rightly claim they're more than just a file-sharing service because they'll be providing distributed computing as well. Unless the law is an ass, this should ensure the guilty parties in an exchange of copyrighted material are those making it available and those receiving it and not the distribution method.
