Napster Filter Bypassed
As of this week Napster was ordered to begin filtering all copyrighted music out of the downloads on the network. Today the popular AOL Instant Messenger add-on Aimster, which allows users to share files via the Napster network directly through AIM, released the Pig Encoder. This software allows users to bypass said filters on Napster, and continue business as usual file sharing.
BetaNews would love to tell you how the encoder works, but it is top secret. If you want to read about it on the Aimster site, you can visit it here. Remember, the more people who find out how it works, the more likely the wrong people will catch wind and new filters will be created to block the pig encoder.
