iMesh reaches agreement with Sony BMG

By on July 11, 2005, 1:25 AM
iMesh, currently one of the most popular P2P file sharing networks, announced that is has reached a licensing agreement with Sony BMG, one of the big four music labels. The move comes as logical step forward after June 27 Supreme Court ruling against Grokster, another P2P network usually used for trading music online.

This should be the first of multiple deals settled by iMesh in order to operate according to the new law that would make them liable for copyright infringements of their users. A deal with Universal Music Group is said to be on its way.

I recently had a WindowsXP (Home) crash, and in restoring Windows it made a backup copy of my Documents file, some of which were password protected. Now, when I try to access those protected files I get the message "Access Denied". I am the Administrator, but that doesn't help. I know the password those files were protected with, but I never have the chance to enter it.Can someone help me with this problem?
