Default Anyone hear of this new ShareFrog thing?

I guess it's some new P2P software, ithat's what the email I got led me to believe. YOu need to pay to download the software, which just doesn't seem right, it's probably some elaborate MPAA/ESA/RIAA trick to catch people.

Sounds like how there's a Kazaa Lite website (can't think of the addy, but I found it when searching for a download site for Kazaa Lite awhile back) that says all this stuff about how you need to pay for a subscription, etc, when that software is freely available on the internet (and the P2P network it uses is open and you don't have to pay for that either).

Weird.

It's probably more likely that they (the software sellers) are trying to capitalize on general user stupidity... "Oh, I have to pay for it, so it must be legal!" <img src=smilies/upeyes.gif>
