CNET: “Apple limits iTunes file sharing”

Ian Fried, staff writer for CNET News.com reports on the latest iTunes upgrade which limits sharing to local networks.

“‘The new iTunes 4.0.1 update limits Rendezvous music sharing to work only between computers on a local network (its intended use) and disables music sharing over the Internet,’ Apple said in a statement provided to CNET News.com.

‘Rendezvous music sharing…has been used by some in ways that have surprised and disappointed us,’ Apple said. ‘We designed it to allow friends and family to easily stream (not copy) their music between computers at home or in a small group setting, and it does this well.  But some people are taking advantage of it to stream music over the Internet to people they do not even know.’”
