I mean look at this website alone. We’ve got Americans, Netherlanders, Belgians, Norwigian, and Limeys all talking to one another. And this is, all things told, a rather small website. How can the government have any power over a site as big as Kazaa or Yahoo?
</font><hr></blockquote><font>US Goverment has control over the copyright laws. They state that, I think, that copying to distribute is illegal. That is what we are doing when we are on KaZaa or Morpheus, according to the RIAA. I do not know where the Kazaa or Morpheus servers are, but if they are in the U.S., they are under the juristiction of the US. I know, people have been copying Tapes to tape, CD’s to Tape, and CD to CD for years, but it is not visible, like Napster, AG, etc. all are..

KaZaa and Morpheus are server based, you are connecting somewhere. It is not a true P2P..
