There are definite parallels here with the Soviet samizdat for 
sure...last year I had fun for awhile by searching for 'Chomsky' on the 
p2p systems and finding all kinds of interesting speeches, interviews, 
and etc. There are extensive Chomsky website archives here and there but 
I had better luck finding it all in one place by searching via p2p -- 
just as with music files.

==> well i think it's not a good idea. when someone download a fake file, he doesn't read it , just
erase it from computer. and i think it's not respectfull of the peer to peer spirit...just share
your documents is more interesting for everybody and more constructive without the file entitled
"traci lord " ...etc...
