Benefits

Internet file sharing enables users to share their original content, such as their own music, with millions of people around the world. As such, it can be an excellent way for emerging artists and bands to be heard and to distribute their music to others. Kazaa has had more than 179 million Media Desktop applications downloaded, and the file-sharing phenomenon seems to be showing no signs of slowing down.

In addition to consumer applications for image, audio, and video file sharing, peer-to-peer computing has the potential to address many of the knowledge management and information sharing pain points within businesses. It can help to leverage distributed computing resources, such as disk space and CPU cycles, for the searching and sharing of business information and for richer forms of collaboration. Some of the vendors and products in the peer-to-peer space on the business side include Groove Networks, NextPage, OpenCola, and Omnipod.
