Finally, the latest version of Freenet has been released and with it a new, clearer version of the Freenet website. Check out http://freenet.sourceforge.net There is a very simple, easy-to-follow webpage explaining how to install it and what to do with it when you have it installed.
That is at http://freenet.sourceforge.net/quickguide/ Freenet uses encryption and distributed file sharing to baffle any attempts to censor, control or otherwise limit information storage, retrieval and distribution. I can not yet state with absolute certainty that its security is impenetrable, though that seems to be the ultimate goal. There appear to be some logging functions which make me uncomfortable as to its current state of security.
Here is a mini-manifesto from the documentation. You can see why this will infuriate the crime cult of Scientology and the cocksucking legal whores it hires to hide its criminal instruction manuals from public scrutiny.
--- Free Speech as the Highest Principle Freenet is built on the conviction that every person in the world has the inaliable right to express his or her opinions without fear of oppression.
For instance, people in totalitarian regimes, or employees of powerful corrupt organisations, may want to blow the whistle on mass abuses of human rights.
In such situations, the traditional Internet protocols - web, email, ftp, chat etc - offer no protection for privacy. People using these protocols can easily find their lives in grave danger.
Therefore, Freenet is built from the ground up to completely disguise the identity of anyone who posts material.
The Freenet community strongly believes that the right to free (and optionally anonymous) expression is the highest truth.
Due to its unique architecture, Freenet usage cannot be policed.
Compare Freenet to a hammer.
A hammer can be used to provide shelter for starving children.
A hammer can also be used to bludgeon people to death.
No one calls for hammers to be banned or modified because of a few violent or careless individuals.
-- Suck on it Scientology. Suck on it MPAA. Suck on it to all Intellectual Property mafiosi. Go ahead and sue it, it needs the advertising, and the sight of totalitarian morons attempting to smash Jello with a hammer remains as amusing as always.
