Submission + - iTunes going to Peer-to-Peer approach?

AlexJTanner writes: "I talked about this in Episode One but I thought we could discuss it in the forums as well. My sources inside Apple tell me that iTunes may be switching to a P2P approach for distributing music. I was told that you may be rewarded on the amount that you seed. Example, for every 500 mb. you upload you could get a free song. I really could care less what they do for distributing music. What I care about is if they will allow podcasters to take advantage of this technology. It could sure lower the bandwidth bills of podcasters. Any Thoughts? NOTE: The 500 mb. thing is just a made up example I don't know what the real amount you would have to upload to get a free song http://www.slightlyunstable.org/phpbb/viewtopic.ph p?p=28#28"
