  1. Is it? Legally, certainly they are separate. Judging from their website, their business is separate. But they bear the reputation of RetSpan, and will bear it for some time, until they prove that they follow different principles. Skunk stinks, you know. EDIT: And just for the record, I'm not going to stop using µTorrent for a reason completely unrelated to its quality, which is, IMO, the best in its class.
  2. Not lying, but. There are two possibilities: 1. Ludde didn't know what PeerFactor is/was, or had incomplete information, and signed a contract. Careless, but OK. He said, on IRC, that he knew about them and doesn't think it important. But now it's evident that it is important, even if it only hurts µTorrent reputation, not codebase, and ludde still refuses to see the problem. 2. Ludde did know what PeerFactor is/was, and signed a contract. Careless, again, but for another reason. In that case ludde should have known that it will ruin µTorrent reputation, and he still refuses to see it.
  3. No, I don't think µTorrent is working with Anti-P2P. I think µTorrent developer was not careful enough, and is not honest enough. Does that mean that there's anything wrong with µTorrent? Not necessarily.
  4. I've been using µTorrent since last October, when I first started using P2P networks, and it is my BT client of choice. All this contract hassle doesn't bother me in the least. Ludde can sign any contracts he likes, and it won't change my choice of BT client, as long as the contracts are not about µTorrent. What really bothers me, and makes me somewhat nervous, is ludde's admission that he didn't know about PeerFactor's anti-P2P stance. Wow. I mean, WOW! Was it contract speed-signing for Guinness book, or what? I'm new to BT and P2P, I don't know a single bit about PeerFactor, so I did a quick google search, and within the first 10 links I got all information I needed to understand the situation. Look, I'm a software developer myself, and I've signed some contracts in my life. And a contract is not signed without at least a cursory check of the other signatory. Ever.
