IAC also has direct deals with Ares Galaxy, BearShare, and iMesh to distribute Ask toolbars.
IAC may claim that BearShare and iMesh are "legal" P2P programs with RIAA legal settlements behind them, but the same cannot be said for FrostWire and Ares, which are still rogue P2P programs. Users of Web of Trust discovered that iLivid, BearShare, and iMesh are all owned by one company, which goes by various names such as "Bandoo Media", "Musiclab, LLC", and "iMesh Inc". IAC acts like the PayPal of piracy and essentially launders the profits from piracy. These deals amount to IAC's "organic" toolbar distribution through copyright infringing channels.
