The Original Video File Sharing Service: Morpheus

At the inception of the internet age of file sharing, Morpheus was at the forefront. The trademark red, green and blue logo was the first video file sharing service I can recall. It was released in 2001 and allowed users to download music, videos and pictures for free. I was in grade 8 when it became the topic of discussion amongst my classmates. I had no idea how to use the thing, but what I did know was that I had to learn. Why?… Porn… I could download porn. For free. Pornography. To a horny, teenage male, that was the only reason I needed to figure it out. Porn. Of course Morpheus was just one of many File Sharing programs that promoted the current practise of stealing from hard working artists, musicians and actors. Did you use any of the following programs to get your fix of the free? <
