Jon Newton Shuts Down P2PNet

Jon Newton's one of a kind P2PNet site is shutting down for lack of funds.

Even Wired has taken notice.

Jon was ahead of his time in many ways with this site, which was often a "go to" place for information on lots of things relevant to copyright law and other eclectic topics.

He was persistent in his criticism of the film and record industry, especially the RIAA "sue 'em all" litigation campaign.

He had to fight off defamation litigation and constantly struggle to get enough income to support his family and to keep the site going.

I hope that Jon can reboot. Here's his "last post".
