RIAA going from bad to worse

The  RIAA has announced that they will no longer be suing people who illegally download music from the internet. Good news?

Is Comcast done with screwing around with bittorrent?

Right now if you use encryption (and use a non standard port number [I use 2460]) for your bittorrent connections you should be still be safe from their screwing around with your connection. Please support both Net Neutrality as well as Open Internet by contributing to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF).
