Ok so this company makes me kinda wonder what our goals are about this whole piracy thing. Are the mindsets of our future generations trying to solve the problem of piracy, and how it is a key factor in the reason digital download sales have only gone up 6% in 2010. Or are we now trying to find loopholes to increase the rate of piracy like this company has demonstrated in their business plan? Im just confused.

Further proof that there is absolutely no way to stop illegal downloads. Ever. Technology will always stay AT LEAST one step ahead of the lawyers. However the more we accept it the less advanced innovations there will be to enhance abilities to pirate music. There's no way this program is actually legal, but there's a ton of websites the do this without even having to download an application. Why even bother to waste hard drive space with mp3Rocket? It could put you at risk for a lawsuit soon. And where would you start if you were going to bust all these websites?

It was a decent article up until "..the downloads will, for the most part, be piss poor.."
Actually, I haven't had any "piss poor" downloads yet. I had a membership with MP3 Rocket and was having trouble connecting to Gnutella a few weeks ago. I emailed them and they sent me a link to install the BETA version of this new version and it works flawlessly. The downloads have been as good or better than any of the bilge from Gnutella. You can download the MP3 files and select 320 kb/s as the bitrate before you download, so how is this "piss poor"?
Good article, but try it before you start prognosticating about the quality. Tisk tisk.
