After Napster became a popular hit out of no where...then they were sued and had to shut down.. not to worry they came back later but in that mean time other peer-to-peer music downloading didn't stop. Why is that? well because people like the fact that they could get music from the internet and burn it on to a cd and or a mp3 player and bring their music they like with them. It is nice to have all of your favorite songs on single cds and when you work out you can have the songs you want to listen to right there.. but anyway... many other downloads came out sites like KaZaA, Morpheus, and LimeWare. there are so many more these are just a few sites.. this is something that the public wants and they don't want to pay for it when it can be downloaded for free... as of right now peer-to-peer can not be stopped and people want the music they are gunna get the music..
