Redswoosh apparently decided to get one of those framed C&D notices some free publicity by offering Microsoft beta software via P2P. From their blog:

"Starting Wednesday, August 2nd (Microsoft) will be charging $1.50 to those who wish to download and test Microsoft Office 2007 Beta 2. It appears that the demand for MS's Office Beta was much larger than the MS budget for bandwidth had anticipated and they've had to resort to charging their beta users for the download.

We at swoosh, with infinite generosity, offer up this FREE swooshed link to Office 2007 Beta2 to rid Microsoft of delivery costs while accelerating the download to users."

Somehow I doubt this will be online for too long.
