Will the File-Sharing Networks Perish?

    RIAA’s and IPI’s efforts to stop the file-sharing networks from spreading copyright infringing files seem to pay off. Mashboxx will acquire Grokster, Kazaa has a few months to become a legal activity and eDonkey is not doing very well either.

    IPI has recently launched a software application that allows concerned

    parents to control their reckless children from becoming pirates, so we may conclude that 2005 was a very bad year for P2P networks.

    But will they actually die? Probably not, because there are a lot of users who don’t realize that at some point they could be sentenced for copyright infringement. And as long as there will be a developer with some experience who needs only a few days to create a P2P client, there will also be some thousands of users illegally sharing files.
