P2P group creates code of conduct

— 3:08 AM on September 30, 2003

The creators of Lime Wire, Grokster, Blubster, BearShare, Morpheus, and eDonkey have banded together to come up with a code of conduct for peer-to-peer network users. The code of conduct encourages users to learn about copyright laws, but stops short of explicitly forbidding piracy.

The same P2P groups behind the code of conduct are actually seeking to work with the RIAA to give online song swappers a means to reimburse the recording industry illegally-downloaded music. But would song swappers pay? And if so, how much? With new entrants to the online music service scene popping up on what seems like a weekly basis, there are already plenty of legal sources for digital music for audiences who are willing to open their wallets.
