P2P-Television Workshop in Amsterdam
Creative Industries and technology are growing further towards each other in Amsterdam today. Researchers from Delft University of Technology just presented the newest P2P-software, called Tribler.
Tribler is fully compatible with BitTorrent, but includes a number of features unique to P2P-software. In particular Tribler builds on top of social networks. For instance, using Tribler it is possible to ‘donate’ your own upload capacity to your Tribler ‘friends’.
Nearly ninety representatives from media companies, universities, software companies and Creative Commons have met together today to get a first glance at Tribler. Moreover, in a one-day workshop they are discussing the possibilities for P2P-TV and the legal aspects of the use of Creative Commons licenses in P2P-TV.
Tribler software is open source.
