Thank goodness. Scour has a nifty, color-schemed interface, file-name based
metadata searching, and fast access. Unlike the other p2p technologies
like Gnutella and Freenet who tend to protect the individual user
by removing the control of the items stored on their hard drive, scour
simply is a universal file sharing tool.

I have no sympathy for Scour as their problems don't lie
with the recording or motion picture industry; their problems
have to do with rampant pornography of the worst kind. It's
not David and Goliath, it'd Sodom & Gomorrah.
