eDonkey Is eDead

1:45 PM –- From The Philter's P2P file, one of the most popular file sharing sites, eDonkey, has finally been led to the dogfood factory. When visitors go to its site now, they're greeted with this:

The eDonkey2000 Network is no longer available.
If you steal music or movies, you are breaking the law.

Courts around the world -- including the United States Supreme Court -- have ruled that businesses and individuals can be prosecuted for illegal downloading.

You are not anonymous when you illegally download copyrighted material.

Your IP address is [redacted] and has been logged.

Respect the music, download legally.

What? No "Have a nice day" sign off? Man, these music industry lawyers have lost their sense of humor.
