CUCKOO EGG: The term and the concept of cuckoo egg is quiet strange. When you download copy protected songs, you may come across cuckoo egg yourself. In the first 30 seconds of the downloaded song you may hear something other than the initial song which could be the cuckoo clock sound effects or a series of random sounds and noises that are free of any copyright ownership. this happens for not buying the cd in the first place

A cuckoo egg is an MP3 file that typically contains 30 seconds of the original song with The remainder of the song overwritten with cuckoo Clock noises, white noise, and/or Voice messages such as, "Congratulations, you must've goofed up somewhere." The Cuckoo Egg project was started as a method of attempting to slow the distribution of illegal copyrighted MP3 files. Cuckoo egg should have the same playing length as the music it pretends to be. The basic technique behind the Cuckoo Egg project is to download an illegal MP3, edit the file so that the first few seconds of it contain the copyrighted material and the rest has been replaced with non-copyrighted cuckoo bird sounds or other random sounds. The overall file size, name, etc. remain the same so users downloading the new file don't realize that it does not contain what they think it should contain. Typically, a user downloads an MP3 file and shares it with others before listening to it. Recognizing this, a cuckoo egg creator creates the cuckoo egg to look exactly like a real MP3 file. The user then unknowingly shares the cuckoo egg with other unsuspecting users spreading the cuckoo egg like a virus. Unlike a virus, cuckoo eggs do not damage computers, but simply annoy and waste the time of those who download the files. The Cuckoo Egg Project began with Michael and Stephanie Fix. Stephanie Fix is a musician who is concerned about the illegal availability of copyrighted music through Napster. The concept centers on the idea of how a real cuckoo bird lays its eggs in another bird's nest. To the Fixes, the Napster system is like a huge nest of MP3 files, a perfect environment in which to lay cuckoo eggs The first cuckoo egg was laid on June 10, 2000. Since then, Napster users have posted hundreds of angry messages at the Cuckoo Egg Project's Web site. Whether it's deterring them from downloading other songs has not been determined. There is an ironic twist to the Cuckoo Egg Project. According to the official Web site's FAQ, cuckoo eggs are also not legal, because they also use unauthorized portions of copyrighted songs. But they claim that only a sample portion is used compared to the entire song being used with Napster, which is more defendable according to fair use laws. Anyone who creates and distributes MP3 files can create cuckoo eggs.

The CUCKOO EGG project has bit of hactivism aimed at promoting debate regarding on-line file trading and artists rights in the digital age. This project is aimed at stopping the online piracy. The methodology used is very simple and involves the creation of an mp3 file and then renaming it to that of a genuine file.

How To Lay Cuckoo's Eggs
As figuratively said, you can lay your own Cuckoo's Eggs in the nests of NApster and other popular peer to peer file sharing networks by following the following steps:
1)Download and install Kazaa or BearShare:
The laying of eggs will be more effective if the esoftware can be installed on multiple machines so that many users can connect.
2)Download or rip songs which are to be used as eggs.
Musicmatch or CoolEdit can be used for ripping songs. Try and use songs from artists who've expressed disapproval of file sharing. Apply it to music that is popular.
3)Edit the songs adding noise, sounds, and other info.
Cool Edit, which is available as shareware can be used for this step. 20-90 seconds of the real song is left intact. replace the remainder with silence, white noise, or other sound files.This must match the duration of the original file. The Cuckoo Egg sound file is also available.
4)The mp3 files so created are copied to the napster directories.
This involves the save the file in MP3 format and copy it into your P2P program's share[/quote]d directory.
5)Connect to Napster and start laying eggs!
