The parallel (CIP) conductance of magnetic multilayers is calculated in the scattering formalism of transport. Geometric and spin-independent ('parasitic') CIP conductance channels are identified in the parallel configuration. The dominance of these channels in bulk systems is an artifact of the semiclassical method employed.
