Leipzig, Germany (PRWEB) January 28, 2009
ipoque, the leading European provider of Internet traffic management solutions, published a new white paper about managing sharing of copyright protected data in the Internet.
During the last years, file sharing of copyright-protected material, particularly in peer-to-peer (P2P) networks, has been a serious threat to the established business models of the content industry. There have been numerous discussions about possible countermeasures, some of which have already been implemented. The white paper aims to provide an as objective as possible assessment of the countermeasures for P2P.
Based on ipoque's experience with Internet traffic management, especially technical countermeasures are discussed and possible solutions using commercial, technical, legal, and regulatory control mechanisms are offered.
