It works pretty much the same way like Kazaa, Napster and some other more famous counterparts. The one big difference for Morpheus, It searches other file sharing networks. Itís truly a genius design.
Now that the recording industry is striking back at a lot of the major file sharing sites, their music catalogs are not as large as they once were.
More users are turning off their file sharing options to prevent themselves from being identified, and therefore being targets of a subpoena. And the rest of the users who donít already have file sharing turned off, are being encouraged to do it as soon as they finish downloading their songs.
In this type of climate, Morpheus is a great way to put all of the services together in one place and widen the scope of all your searches. It also helps because most people only use of the major players, but they usually wonít have two or three of them on their computer.
Another reason why this is helpful is that frankly some of the services are better at one particular type of media, but not everything. All of the Kazaa permutations are known for their access to music files. Grokster and some others are good at content files like book texts, and images etc. Morpheus can take you beyond that, and truly give you a powerful, fast search box with a comprehensive cross referenced database.
So what gets searched?
Kazaa, iMesh, Grokster, Gnutella, eDonkey, G2, Limewire and more.
They recently came out on the winning side of a lawsuit for copyright infringement so I think they are in a pretty good place right now. Of course, this doesnít mean that you are not liable if you download copyrighted content using their service. As with their counterparts, you can get an ad supported free version, or you can go for the ad free and pop up free paid version.
If you get the free version of this or any other file sharing application, you should always have the most up to date virus protection, pop up blocking software and firewall protection. You never know whatís in those files.
