Broadband-internet information

Long arm of the law reaches new internet (riaa, internet-2, i2hub lawsuit) - broadband-internet


Have you heard of the new Internet? It's called Internet 2 and this time they're not fooling around. The Abilene Exchange ideas , begun in 1999 provides the main backbone and they're a pure optical arrangement wired for speed.

According to their website, (on the plain old common Internet) "The Abilene Network, which at present connects over three million users, 220 examine and learning institutions, and 34 state culture networks, operates at a speed 15,000 times closer than the be in the region of household broadband link and with a capability to send 9. 7 million five-paragraph e-mails in one second. "

This means we're soon going to get nuclear powered spam!

Everyone knows speed is addictive. Not only for Indy 500 racecar drivers, but also for laptop art mega-geeks who will one day as a final point rule the world. They're shooting for speeds in the Terabyte range; that's a trillion bits of in sequence every second.

"We now wish to be called "Tera-geeks, you puny sub-creatures!"

"Do I need all that speed for my email?" one might ask. You do if you're attaching astrophysics, fusion energy computations, and bioinformatics with your message. The acquaint with Internet can't carry this kind of math. But will Internet 2 be used only for noble purposes? I haven't heard of any holographic lap dances yet, but some associates are categorically not happy with what Internet 2 users are doing.

Like the establishment of the first Internet in the 70's and 80's, Internet 2 is the field of universities and examine organizations for the drive of advancing the aspirations and privileged belief of humanity. Academia students are before now benefiting from the expertise by illegally downloading movies and music at warp speed. A full-length movie only takes five action to download on the Internet 2 as an alternative of an hour or more by cable modem. Songs come at a pithy twenty seconds.

"Not so fast!" says the best ever and movie industry. They're nipping this one in the bud. The RIAA announced that it's suing 405 characteristic students for copyright infringement violations using the "i2hub". The movie activity is suing an hidden add up to of students as well. What's i2hub? It's like a Napster on crack. But you need to use it on Internet 2 to certainly fly - and that's not open to the all-purpose broadcast yet.

According to the Beckon Conceive of Alliance of America, there were 7070 users distribution 99. 2 TB of files in one current picture of time. "Ninety-nine terabytes is a sufficient amount storage space space to hold all the movies that are accessible in a local Epic store, yet associates are swapping those movies completely free," said an outraged and very frustrated Dan Glickman, Head of the MPAA.

The RIAA will sue a handful of students per academic world to plant the seeds of fear widely. UC San Diego, UC Berkeley, & the Academia of Southern California are among the 18 Universities where students are being served papers.

Can they stuff the electronic genie back in the bottle? If they can't, the RIAA and MPAA are not going down easy. Dream up 405 students occupation home illuminating Mom & Dad to be ready to put up the house for the reason that they accepted wisdom the Internet 2 was a classified arrangement and they just sought after to fill up the iPod they were given for Christmas. The peak offenders, according to the RIAA, were immovable with up to 13,600 MP3's, and 72,700 total files (such as audio, software and video).

"Son, what were you thinking, I've got "Planet of the Apes" at home!
