Pooh & Pokemon P2P Porn Pimps


No mascot, just lame jokes for the latest round of propaganda. Parental anti-P2P propaganda from Childnet International, which closely cooperated with the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) for their Young People, Music and the Internet - a guide for parents about P2P, file-sharing and downloading. Childnet seeks to inform parents of the potential (legal) risks of P2P use by their children trough a brochure, and while trying to pose objective, spreads more fear than balanced facts: viruses, open doors, spyware, chat room lurkers, zombie pc's spreading personal medical information and of course porn, porn, porn. The threats from P2P are numerous and imminent and even that the most trusted of child's friends are into the scheme: "Even files named “Winnie the Pooh” or “Pokemon” have been found to contain pornography."
After such a revelation what to say of arguable claims like "Downloading music without permission from p2p is illegal in most countries"? I just can't get that honey drivrn bear out of my head.
