Global Peer to Peer (P2P) File Sharing Software Market Overview:
Peer-to-peer file sharing is the process of distribution and sharing of digital media using peer-to-peer (P2P) networking technology. P2P file sharing permits users to access the media files like the books, movies, music, and games using a P2P software program that further searches for some other connected computers on a P2P network so as to locate the preferred content. The peers of such kind of networks are usually the end-user computers and the distribution servers that are not required. Peer-to-peer file-sharing technology has at present evolved through a number of design stages from the initial networks such as Napster, which had once popularized the technology, to the later models such as the BitTorrent protocol. Microsoft also uses it for the purpose to update distribution and also online playing games use it as their content distribution network for the purpose of downloading large amounts of data without gaining the dramatic costs for the bandwidth inherent when providing just a single source. Some of the key players profiled in the study are BitTorrent (United States), Microsoft Corporation (United States), Google (United States), Ares Management (United States), Sharman Networks (Vanuatu), Drupal Association (Belgium), eDonkey/Overnet (United States), Free Software Foundation (United States), WinMX (United States) and Vuze, Inc.
