Two questions- how do the music companies know that only "illegal users" are being targeted and what exactly do they mean by "disrupt their systems"? I'm also very interested in how people feel about the practice of "spoofing".

But anyway, everyone's gone back to using irc and usenet for mp3 trading anyway. The only people still using p2p are warez dudes and posters to slashdot.
