Luke, Luke come to the dark side Luke! I think it is strange
that when a person mentions Usenet all they think about is
the text groups. 

It's the other left folks, the alt.binaries side that use's
rar files. Yes their is plenty of uses without copyright
infringement. If your into video and working on a project
and someone asks for a sample if you use zip, or tar they
will probably laugh at you. How else are you going to get a
uniform file size of say 15mb each in your sample if you
don't use rar?
