Aimster removes Pig Encoder

Written by Jari Ketola @ 14 Mar 2001 14:33

File sharing firm Aimster on Wednesday said it has removed the Pig Encoder at the request of Napster.
The Pig Encoder enables users to get around court-ordered restrictions imposed on Napster using a simple, yet efective, pig Latin "scrambling". The decision to remove the software was done out of respect for Napster's efforts to maintain it's service.

But not to worry. Even though Aimster decided to remove the encoder we at AfterDawn.com are determined to offer our users the right to choose.
