I remeber now that the article I read on new Torrent startups was in IBD
(Investor's Biz Daily) Wed Aug 16, 2006:
It featured companies like Cache Logic that has a special tool to manage P2P
traffic. They have $28 million in venture company funding, including $20
million raised during July.
Warner Bros. has an agreement with Bit Torrent to distribute movies. Bit
Torrent has 70 million users world wide.
Verisign is launching P2P Kontiki, and so are Neo-Edge and EMI launching
I'd be real surprise MSFT doesn't find its way into the Torrent Business and
also into a new encryption business that is revolutionary that Cleversafe
is doing by open source distributed data storage--in the area of distributed
file systems research.
