oh lol .. that is not really Bearshare. That is really a different program. The creator of the original BearShare sold it .. it was taken over by a company that works with the RIAA & they changed the program itself (though uses the same program name to pull people into it) .. doesn't even work on the gnutella network since version 6 or so. BearShare has been sabotaged. and more is explained here Shareaza; View topic - The Story: Shareaza, iMesh, RIAA, and Recent Events

Quote: " ... iMesh 8, Bearshare 7, Lphant 4, and ShareazaV5 are one product"
"iMesh/MusicLab acquired Bearshare for an inexplicable $30 million in 2006, part of terms initiated with FreePeers (P2P) as they settled for an equal amount with the RIAA. Thereafter existing as merely a rebranded iMesh client, ShareazaV4 appears to play into the same pattern."
