P2Pnet.net For Sale
The P2Pnet news site is now for sale. The site runs news articles which are relevant to peer to peer (P2P) file sharing, showing up the bullying tactics of the RIAA, MPAA and the Big 4 Organised Music Cartel (EMI, Vivendi Universal, Sony BMG and Warner Music).
But for Jon Newton, who runs the site, "time and money have run out for p2pnet.net". He cites the loss of advertising revenue due to actions against a number of his advertisers as a reason he can no longer continue with the project.
Jon hopes sell the site to someone who'll keep it going, and would like to keep an editorial position, but if needed he'll just sell the domain and have the current site archived for future posterity.
P2Pnet has been running since 2002 publishing daily articles on P2P filesharing, the actions of the RIAA, MPAA and the Big 4 Organised Music Cartel against their consumers and the problems of DRM. It would be a tragedy if the site closed for good after the years of insightful articles, but things are not looking hopeful.
