The Darknet and the Future of Content Distribution

Peter Biddle, Paul England, Marcus Peinado, and Bryan Willman

Microsoft Corporation[1]


We investigate the darknet - a collection of networks and technologies used=
to share digital content. The darknet is not a separate physical network =
but an application and protocol layer riding on existing networks. Example=
s of darknets are peer-to-peer file sharing, CD and DVD copying, and key or=
password sharing on email and newsgroups. The last few years have seen va=
st increases in the darknet's aggregate bandwidth, reliability, usability, =
size of shared library, and availability of search engines. In this paper =
we categorize and analyze existing and future darknets, from both the techn=
ical and legal perspectives. We speculate that there will be short-term im=
pediments to the effectiveness of the darknet as a distribution mechanism, =
but ultimately the darknet-genie will not be put back into the bottle. In =
view of this hypothesis, we examine the relevance of content protection and=
content distribution architectures.

is math the ultimate third person narrative?

on second thought

hey all-

i have used the following analogy for awhile to describe the significance o=
f multi-media creations ("mediatrip").

radio wave/sounds/music

paper delivers the words of literature
radio waves deliver the sounds of music
internet delivers the events* of the mediatrip

recently, i decided to replace "internet" with "screen"

does this switch improve the analogy?
is it now a more accurate analogy?

go to www.mediatrips.com to see it on my site.

* An event is the occurance of media file on the timeline
