Wired News: Next for BitTorrent: Search (via Slashdot)

"In this environment, a comprehensive search facility operated by BitTorrent's creator could be a bright red bull's-eye to content industry lawyers, says Mark Lemley, a law professor at Stanford University Law School and an expert in intellectual property and internet law."
