One Way Darknets Are Vulnerable
USA Today publishes an AP wirestory about the recent prosecution of a copyright infringer who was a member of the warez group DrinkorDie (Washington state man sentenced for copyright infringement). In return for no jail sentence and a $6,000 fine, the defendant provided information on other member's of his group:
Burns departed from minimum sentencing guidelines of 33 to 41 months imprisonment, noting Myers' cooperation in exposing and breaking up several warez groups.
Another reason why darknets
will be invulnerable to legal attack. If you keep them small, you'll be safe, but subject to the social controls of the group. If they grow too large, they'll become vulnerable to legal attack.
Darknets will be a significant part of our filesharing future, I believe, but they won't be perfect substitutes for the current, open filesharing networks. Ultimately, I think they will be supplemental and complimentary to licensed filesharing networks.
