    A different kind of view on P2P

    (I didnt exactly know where to post this but plz dont flame me for my poor newbie existence)

    Hi again to fellow AO'ers...

    I was wondering if I ran a p2p on a moral basis (I know that sounds stupid.), would I be wrong?

    I mean:
    1. Not downloading MP3's or theater released movies
    2. Only limiting myself to shareware & free programs (un-pirated software) &
    text documents.
    3. Videos for educational puposes

    This may be a shot in the dark; I hope I wont get flamed for this but..... I want to use P2P to learn from the P2P network (how it works and why it is so effective), and to download information open to public usage on the net.
