There is a really interesting discussion going on in the Slyck forums about the implicatons of darknets and anonymous P2P networks. Apparently some of the warez guys are starting to use Freenet more frequently, starting indexing sites such as FreeNova.

Slyck reader Yaveznodo isn't too happy about this:

"Shouldn't we campaign for the copyright rules to be changed rather than hide? Wouldn't it be better for all of us if we could fileshare without any need for this kind of hiding? Running away, putting our head under the sheets doesn't solve the underlying problem, which is that of the copyright laws. (...)

The monster is still under the bed, we need to turn the light on, instaed of pulling the sheets over our heads."

Good arguments from the other site too. Definitely worth a read.
