All known P2P software have different views in many different countries, the RIAA is against it and most countries made it illegal to download music.
The principal of P2P software out and available today is that one machine acts as both Host & client while anoter acts as the first ones opposite and files are transferred, shared, and permanently stored on the machine that was client.
Say there was a Database, a huge one, with people’s lists of MP3’s or movies or files and IP’s of their personal servers running. All the website would provide is the info and destination of the source for desired music, but NO actual connection would be made. It would be up to people to log in on their own free will and download what they want.
Would this be legal???
It’s just a reference (like an encyclopedia) not a direct link and download set-up.
