Right in the middle of round 2 of RIAA Smackdown 2003, a new character enters the ring.
EarthStation5, a new p2p service that aims on hiding file sharers and their activities, has declared itself at war on the entertainment industry. This is what Slate has to say about them.

It uses a mesh of proxy servers, encrypted data, and other identity-hiding tricks to keep copyright owners from tracking who's downloading what

But that's not nearly as amazing as what they have to say about themselves:

Our group is made up of many people, Jordanians, Palestinians, Indians, Americans, Russians and Israelis. Some of us are Jewish, some Christians, some Hindus and other of us are Muslim.

Believe it or not, we all love and respect each other.

We all work and play together. Our families on many occasions eat at the same dinner table. We trust each other and are very close friends with each other. As a group, the most important thing in our life is our children, our families and love ones and of course our friends.

Where is this multi-faith p2p operation based out of? Their address points mail to
"Gaza Gaza, Palestine"
