CNET: Hackers: iTunes can be shared over Net

CNET‘s staff writer, John Borland reports on the latest music trend sweeping the Internet as iTunes 4 users have discovered that they can share their music collection with others. It was thought that iTunes 4 only supported sharing over a LAN (local area network), but several programmers have discovered that iTunes 4 does have Internet sharing capabilities built-in and are beginning to exploit the unsupported feature.

“Apple itself did not release documentation on the over-the-Net sharing features and does not officially support the efforts. 

iTunes ‘is not meant to be used in any other way than for personal use,’ said an Apple representative. The company said it will be monitoring the trend, but had no further comment.”
