How long did we really think this would take?

Welcome to the world of Anonx. In the spirit of anonymous re-mailers and Anonymizer(the anonymous web surfing tool), there is a new player on the block that hides your identity when using P2P programs. Basically, the Anonx software creates a virtual network between your computer and the Anonx server and you use P2P programs on the Anonx machines rather than on your own machine. Sound confusing? It's actually really simple -- pay $5.95 a month to Anonx and download all you want using software from companies like Kazaa.

Why did the person who created Anonx actually create it? He was pissed off at the RIAA suing people and he firmly believes that the RIAA will NOT be able to receive a judgement to get access to the Anonx servers. Read more from SecurityFocus.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: The RIAA needs to figure out a way to embrace the P2P technology.
