It's not news that there are companies putting up files on BT and tracks down who's downloading them. This is exactly the reason why I rarely use BT at all now, because I actually had my internet "locked up" for about 2 days because I was "flagged for downloading copyrighted contents".

The article you've provided doesn't say anything about the government actually paying the companies to do these things, but rather the companies providing info to law enforcement agencies, which is what they're obligated to do. Saying that they're a government project is like saying informants or whoever calls 911 is a government agent.

As for fake files, you must be fairly new to Share, because around 50% of the files are fake, especially if you run it 24/7 with lots of triggers. I personally just delete anything with password protections, because 99.9% of times these are fake no matter what you do to try to get the "password".

It's just something you have to live with when using Winny/Share, that cleaning out fake files are just what comes with it.

Perfect Dark's rating system is nice, though there are still the possibilities that a lot of idiots rating a fake file up.
