We need a MyDoom virus to bring down the dickheads website…or enterprising hackers to bring them down. Also what’s the legal status of the software in Germany (they’re gmbh right, i.e. German) do they fall fowl of the German copyright laws at all…you know a quick word in the right ear and the legal wheels start turning?

if it weren’t illegal, I would go their office and smash everything into pieces :slight_smile: these ‘lawyers’ need to get bashed by the emule community!

If that happens situations like this won’t arise as these guys will have no money to sue anyone in the first place.
