And people should be worried. In this reporterís opinion, the healthy flow of DVD rips, music, games and all sorts of other goodies has never been so good as since the lovely BitTorrent came on to the scene. But of course, thatís illegal. Never forget that. But the difference these days is that one thinks that the retaliation is just as illegal in nature. Denial of service attacks?

Its almost like a campaign of retribution. Attack. Attack. Attack. Download Paradise, and some others just gone.
