But if its out and going its pretty hard to stop.

ISP's can often detect some P2P type traffic and some slow it grossly down. However, it isn't too hard for software to disguise itself as web traffic, and I wouldn't be surprised to see more p2p software doing this.
Combined with more anonymity for its users.

Yes, I was thinking of DPA/DPI, which is currently start to gain more and more popularity among ISPs, especially in the US. Although, I never said they could shut it down, just said they were trying to.

Their arguments against copyright seem to be "it cant be done with a freenet, therefor we are against it"

I agree with everything else they say though.
I think what they were trying to say is that there is a greater purpose, and losing the solution copyrights have presented is a small price to pay.
They don't pretend to have a solution to the problem, they just say they think it's not something unsolvable.

Freenet can transparently operate through firewalls
Freenet now operates over UDP rather than TCP
Operates transparently through a firewall? This sounds like it simulates distribution as TCP data through a port that is open for other reasons

Communications by Freenet nodes are encrypted and are "routed-through" other nodes to make it extremely difficult to determine who is requesting the information and what its content is.
Umm, this means, it sends my data to ChaosFish, and then ChaosFish sends this data to intended recipitant, Darkflame, and DarkFlame can only tell it came from ChaosFish, not me. Well, that makes sense as a privacy sensor, but, for those who pay for their bandwidth, it means ChaosFish is a poor middleman who receives this data, which is not needed for him, and has to download this data to a Darkflame as well. Thats just the law of the system, he has his own upload/download on top of that. The price to pay for privacy.

The thing is, it may be a small price to pay.

Hey people. I've always been looking for the best p2p software and haven't found anything yet that satisfies me.

I mean, Limewire is very very fast but has a limited files network. Only good for songs.. and even then, you won't find any full album.
And eMule has a big and vast network but it is so bulky and slow.

So, I wanna ask two things:

1 - ( http://xtreme-mod.net/direct_download_mod.htm ) Is this mod for emule safe/good?

2 - ( http://www.lphant.com/ ) is this soft good? it says it uses eMule network... but is it faster and safe/good?

I don't know about these kind of things. I sometimes find myself using SoulSeek, hardly ever really.

uTorrent for me is the best program. Very simple, tiny, and don't take any memory from your pc. You should try, really.

I agree, uTorrent is great, especially in combination with ratio-based trackers like ScT. And larger(and slower) trackers like TPB and Mininova if i cant find what im looking for.
