1.3 Future and Vulnerability

Some futurists believe P2P networks will trigger a revolution in the near future.
The ease of use, the huge choice and finally the low price (often free) have been
the main reason for the explosion of file-sharing applications over the past years.
Add to this the fact that internet connection speeds are steadily increasing, the
arrival of newer faster algorithms (Caltech’s FAST algorithm was clocked 6,000
times faster than the internet’s current protocol) as well as the incapacity to
control or monitor such networks. This P2P revolution simply means huge
quantities of data will be available almost instantly to anybody for free.
This, of course, is disturbing news for many industries (music, movie, game...)
as P2P networks provide an alternative way of acquiring many copyrighted
products. These industries have very actively been waging war against “digital
piracy” for a decade soon. The results of this war are controversial but as P2P
networks have never stopped growing during this period of time, it is acceptable
to think that they will steadily grow on and gain even more importance in the
future.
