Using financial incentives to enable legal media distribution in ad-hoc peer-to-peer networks: An introduction to FluidMedia

Gouguenheim, Christophe; Pradhan, Salil; Brignone, Cyril; Recker, John; Serra, Bill; Zhang, Kan


Keyword(s): media sharing; peer-to-peer network; digital right management; copyright; incentive

Abstract: Can the media industry profitably use peer-to-peer networks to increase their market? We propose a novel media distribution system called FluidMedia that potentially answers this question. FluidMedia provides a framework within which users can trade in media copyrights legally and remunerate the media provider for these. Furthermore, users are actually encouraged to engage in such trade through economic incentives.
