02.01.06 - P2P 2005 Wrapup: A year in the life of a p2p user
Nice little article is attached to this news item. It follows a years worth of p2p news, and if your interested in this kind of thing makes good viewing
January 2005 began with 8.4 million individuals connected to various P2P networks at any given time. Despite 8,559 “John Doe” lawsuits, MGM’s victory over Grokster, the fall of i2Hub, the demise of commercial P2P, and the union of Bram Cohen and the MPAA, the P2P population managed to expand by 1.1 million individuals in 2005. The great variable – BitTorrent - is not so easily calculable, leaving many to speculate how enormous the file-sharing community truly is, and how much it will grow in 2006.
