Re: Napster and others...
I am a corporate end user so the common carrier exception does not apply to me and the intellectual property demon does. re: ORBS I got those addresses from my traffic analyis on where the MP3 traffic was coming from and I apologize to the list and it's members for not checking who the block belongs to. I have no desire to add fuel to the ORBS controversy. Internet access has become critical to many business processes and we need to come up with mechanism to allow traffic like MP3 to fill slack in our networks however in my case I need to ensure that bandwith is available for the purpose for which it is purchased for. If Napster and it's ilk were well written applications I could create custom queues for it and discard when necessary like I do for non business related web traffic rather than my current heavy handed ACL's If anyone on the list has a alternate method I would appreciate hearing about it and my users would love me for giving them back access to Napster and other music sites.
