+ - US House of Representatives passes P2P ban->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Recently, the US House of Representatives passed a bill in an attempt to ban peer-to-peer file-sharing applications on federal computers and networks. Similar bills have been proposed before, apparently in response to confidential government documents being found on LimeWire. The text of the bill, however, provides a very broad definition of "peer-to-peer file sharing software", and may extend to more than they intend (SMB? LDAP?)."
