Submission + - Harvard releases disruptive P2P file sharing code (harvard.edu)

Instant_Harvard_Groupie writes: Today Harvard released a program what they hope is a first peek at a new generation of P2P file sharing. Their P2P software demonstrates a 'deft trick'. It turns Internet bandwidth into a global currency.
They explore the generation of P2P beyond Bittorrent tit-fot-tat by creating a leak-free economy. They also fully integrated TOR into their software to demonstrate the fundamental flaws in tit-for-tat incentives. Quite disruptive for Youtube as they integrated video website search and you will never have visit such sites separately anymore. Features: keyword search, Bittorrent downloads, Youtube access, TOR integration, and LGPL. Platforms: Ubuntu, Mac, W95, Vista. May an army of law professors protect them from harm now and in the future because they have some serious P2P research plans..
