P2P company, Aimster, has setup an Amazon.com honor donation system on its website in order to collect money to help it in its legal battle against RIAA.
Aimster, a P2P program that piggybacks on AOL's Instant Messenger program and allows users to share files within their "buddylists" and also to share and download music from Napster and Gnutella networks, is sued by RIAA who is accusing that software violates its copyrights just like Napster does.

Aimster has also other problem -- a panel that decides over trademarks and domainnames in the U.S., recently decided that Aimster has to give its domainname to AOL.
