9781593270506: Steal This File Sharing Book: What They Won't Tell You About File Sharing

Steal This File Sharing Book tackles the thorny issue of file sharing networks such as Kazaa, Morpheus, and Usenet. It explains how these networks work and how to use them. It exposes the dangers of using file sharing networks--including viruses, spyware, and lawsuits--and tells how to avoid them.

In addition to covering how people use file sharing networks to share everything from music and video files to books and pornography, it also reveals how people use them to share secrets and censored information banned by their governments. Includes coverage of the ongoing battle between the software, video, and music pirates and the industries that are trying to stop them.

Review:

"An essential 'bible' for any avid file-sharer." -- Midwest Book Review, January 2005 http://www.midwestbookreview.com/ibw/jan_05.htm

"Enjoyed the little touches, like the letter Bill Gates wrote in the 70's imploring hobbyists to stop stealing his software." -- The Rose Review, December 14, 2004 http://trrbooks.blogspot.com/

"Go ahead and buy (don’t steal) this book if you want to understand the background and issues surrounding file sharing." -- MacCompanion, December 2004 http://www.maccompanion.com/documents/freeissues/2004/december2004.pdf

"Unquestionably the best book on the subject that I've read... Steal This File Sharing Book is both funny and lucid." -- Boing Boing, December 12, 2004 http://www.boingboing.net/2004/12/12/steal_this_file_shar.html

Contributed article by Wallace Wang entitled, "Let’s sue everybody! (or ‘why file sharing is not illegal’)" -- SC Magazine, December 1, 2004 http://www.scmagazine.com/features/index.cfm?fuseaction=FeatureDetails&newsUID=df1cfb91-0249-43b8-b4af-b03c67acdfe3&newsType=Opinion

If it were up to Microsoft, Adobe, Cisco... just about any software or music publisher, this book would be banned. -- Geek.com, September 12, 2005 (http://www.geek.com/news/geeknews/2005Sep/fea20050912032209.htm)

The breadth of coverage is impressive, the writing and organization excellent. -- Reader’s Preference http://www.readerspreference.com/reviews/stealfilesharing.html
