Default New P2P Client Adds Darknet for File Sharing

The new version of P2P client LimeWire—now at version 5.1.1—has been in the news lately for a feature that makes it simple for even the newbiest newb to create a "darknet." Nothing here is technically ground-breaking, but LimeWire's massive install base means that millions of users now have a secure and simple way to share files with each other and no one else.

Darknets are going mainstream, something that could make it more difficult than ever for rights-holders hoping to monitor public P2P networks in order to pick off offenders. That process, already difficult enough, could get a lot harder as such tools migrate out from the geekerati.
