No surprise here, of course, but an increasing number of software developers are looking for ways to create file sharing software the preserve anonymity for users. These aren't new, but following the RIAA lawsuits, they're getting a lot more interest, and should become a lot more common. Of course, that wouldn't have been necessary if the music industry decided to support business models that embrace file sharing. Of course, how does the music industry respond to these systems? By saying they'll try to sue those people for even more money. That's right, they quote someone saying that anyone caught using such software will show that they're even more guilty of file sharing, and thus open to "stiffer penalties".
