Webcasters Going Underground
from the p2p-to-the-rescue dept
With the recording industry doing their best to charge small hobbyist webcasters out of business, new tools are showing up that will help webcasters go underground by passing their webcast stream around via a distributed, gnutella-like network. There are a few tools like this popping up, which are designed to make it much more difficult to track down where the stream is originating. There are some scare tactic quotes in the article from the music industry, basically saying “we’ll still find you, and when we do…”. It seems the music industry really does want to kill any sort of broadcasting system they can’t control – even if it would help them sell more music.
