Comments:The following article updates and replaces a previously submitted article. A Dirty Word: Filtering Filtering has become a dirty word in the entertainment vs. P2P war. The entertainment industry trots it out regularly as the solution for stopping copyright infringement. The RIAA says that it's just like filtering adult content or IP addresses. The P2P players reject it outright as impractical and a return to the illegal past. This paper dives past the rhetoric with an analysis of whether and how it could work. See attached document for the full article.
