Universal IM Programs?
I'm just wondering whether programs that can connect to other IM protocols are illegal in theory, since it is using specifically designed, undisclosed protocols by proprietary companies? By those programs I meant GAIM, Miranda, Trillian, Jabber (Psi, etc.). Even though everyone is using it, it doesn't necessarily mean it is legal. I'm wondering because downloading music using KaZaA, eMule, and BT are illegal but people still do it. Anyone has any idea?
