This shouldn't be a surprise to, well, anyone, but the more the RIAA fights back against file sharing, the further underground file sharing goes. The latest efforts include building in more anonymity to file sharing services, and also designing systems to make it easier to figure out which files were legitimate, and which were fakes, viruses or spyware. This is only going to continue until the recording industry stops the current self-destructive campaign and realizes it's time to embrace file sharing and figure out ways to build real business models based on file sharing. Either that, or they can wait and let others do it for them - which is what appears to be happening.
