P2P Being Used as Distribution Tool
A recent News.com story outlines how one peer-to-peer network has reconfigured its business model into a content distribution business.
"Red Swoosh and rival Kontiki, along with a handful of other companies, say peer-to-peer technology allows content distributors to pass off much of their distribution costs–largely in the form of Net bandwidth charges–to their customers," according to the article. "For companies distributing large files to many people, such as gaming or video publishers, that can be a huge benefit, they say."
