*EDIT* OK, after reading other reviews of this app, I've taken the direct link down.
I haven't advocated grey matter before and I'm not about to start.
The blog I initially read is below, followed by other links of interest.

@Scott,

GREAT FIND !!!!

I'm just curious as to how it works ??

"NO Detection by ISP is a Very Bold Claim to make in this day and age".

Not that I care, but always curious knowing how the net is / was built.

*** There is only (one) encryption scheme I know of that can't be broke as it would take (longer) than the time the Known Universe has been in existence from my readings.

Kindest Regards,
Rick P. ♥ :)

Yes, quite bold. Whoever wrote that needs a brusher course on spin.
All I know is it works great.

has anyone used this yet? can you get just artists that give their music away for free or is it just any music in general?

edit: i'm also not sure how you can block things from you isp seeing as you do need to go through them some how you know because you are connected to them otherwise you would not have any internet connection lol even if they worked as a proxy or such that is just supposed to block things on the outside and not really the inside.

Nope, jack, it is anything in general!

Make sure you have wikipedia handy - to get track listings, so you get the correct tracks!

This is like that software that is touted with "Free Download!!". Yes, it's free to download but it still costs money to acquire a license to use it.

Similarly, if you acquire a music track that is copyrighted and licensed but you do not acquire a license, then you have a pirated song. If some of these songs are coming from people posting them on MySpace, or FaceBook, or other, then *they* are the ones that have pirated it in the first place. They are redistributing music that they don't have a license to redistribute. The RIAA is going to crack down on the distributors, not the distributees (like you).

Music that comes from a radio station that streams it is only licensed for listening by streaming. Stream rippers have been around for many years, though it seems that these Clickster people are indexing the ripped streams. If they are storing them on their own servers, they are breaking their contract with the original streamer.

Now if the license for the music allows free redistribution, then there is no problem.
