    Now, regarding this P2P file sharing program called: Morpheus, i strongly recommend that everybody DO NOT download this program, because it will cause programs on your computer to crash very OFTEN and it will also install a number of spyware along with its main application. Always beware when downloading programs, don't download blindly.

    Yet Morpheus says it values people's privacy and anonymity, which i say is just a DAMN BIG LIE.
    This is Morpheus's LIE:

    The use of Morpheus for illegal activities, including infringement of intellectual property laws, may subject the infringing user to civil and/or criminal penalties.

    Morpheus takes care to protect the safety and privacy of young people accessing our website or using our multi-purpose file-sharing software program, and encourages parents to participate in your child's experience in cyberspace. Morpheus.com is a general audience site, and we do not knowingly collect information about children. Morpheus recommends that parents use Morpheus' Parental Controls on the Morpheus application. To further reduce the risk of inadvertently exposing children to inappropriate file content, you can also obtain additional information about safe surfing through the Federal Trade Commission web site. http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pubs/online/sitesee.htm

    Privacy Principles
    Morpheus values your anonymity and privacy. Morpheus does not contain or bundle malicious spyware. Upon being served with valid subpoenas or warrants, Morpheus will cooperate with governmental agencies to eliminate and prosecute trafficking in child pornography and other similar crimes. If there are any folders on your computer you do not wish to share, please be certain to remove them from your shared folders directory. Morpheus does not disclose any personal information about the user or the user’s online activities, to any third party, unless required to by law.

    For more information on championing and defending the rights and interests of P2P technology users, please visit www.p2punited.org.

    Morpheus will not, without a user’s informed and confirmed consent, disclose any personal information about the user or the user’s online activities, to any third party, unless required to by law.

    The notices, warnings and principles discussed here are for user information and to guide the user in using the Morpheus software legally and appropriately. Nothing herein forms any agreements, licenses, or contracts between StreamCast Networks Inc. and the user.



    (If Morpheus really values people's privacy and anonimity, why would it bundle spyware/malware along with its main application? If all these crazy spyware companies would just stop collecting people's personal private information in order to earn money and do something good, then maybe the internet would have some peace.)

    Once upon a time, Morpheus advertised itself as being spyware free and it was. That was at lest 2 years ago and things have certainly changed with that program.

    I don't bother to concern myself as to why they changed, the fact that it's not a clean program anymore is enough for me to avoid it. Money or the promise of money is probably why they changed.
