Economy of State Reflected Through the Internet File-Sharing Patterns

Person to person file sharing in the form of movie files, music files, television show, book and other types of files has gained immense growth in the world of internet usage. Most often this approach is illicit, but this is the best alternative means for sharing large size for the people. Data obtained from a sample part of the world has indicated that BitTorrent users contribute up to 1/3rd for the total internet traffic in that region. Users can share files even in the absence of broadband connections.

According to the reports, when compared to countries with large gross domestic product per capita (who are into sharing smaller files like that of music and videos), in countries with lower GDP per capita, BitTorrent users share large size files like that of movies over the internet. According to a recent study, a country’s economy primarily has a vital role in the internet sharing patterns of the people of the country. Studies have indicated that poorer countries have reflected that the people there download large size HD files over the internet.

Two very distinct behavioral patterns were discovered by the Northwestern University research team. This was based on the amount of data that was being shared by the users of BitTorrent, which is a very popular file-sharing application. The very first behavior reflected that BitTorrent users are very particular about the type of content they are sharing.

It was found that users tend to share music files more compared to movies. The second behavioral pattern indicated that countries belonging to the same categories as that of the first one lean to download files in a related pattern. According to Luis A. Nunes Amaral, who is a professor in the Robert R. McCormick School of Engineering as well as Applied Science at the Northwestern University in the America, looking at the current internet usage pattern around the world, the computer interaction is part of our daily life.

To get an understanding and findings out of the study, the researchers had carried out an analysis of nearly 10,000 users of BitTorrent users around the world. The analysis highlighted that the users shared files which comprised of music, TV shows, small files, books and movies. Nearly 50% of the BitTorrent users downloaded files which primarily fell into two categories, namely not generalist and content specialist.

According to Fabian E. Bustamante, who is the co-author as well as professor of electrical engineering and computer science, this study will be able to provide lots of insights about the functioning of a country. People in a particular country will definitely show an obvious preference for any particular kind of content over the internet. They might even go to content which might to readily available due to the poor communication infrastructure and the laws of the country’s government.

Bustamante and his lab developed an app called as “The Ono app”, which will basically help the users to enhance the performance of the BitTorrent while ensuring that the impact of the same on their internet traffic is minimized.

How to Download Torrent on iOS

Bittorrent technology avails you to download torrent on Chromebook and that isn’t illegal. Like other downloading technology this to opt for both legal and illegal content.

BitTorrent says “1 PB of data exchanged”!

Two weeks after being made available for its Sync client, BitTorrent has decided to take on the amount of data exchanged via its service. The figure is quite impressive: 1 Petabyte in just 14 days. But a question remains unanswered: how these figures are collected when no centralized server is at their part? The company says on this point. In late January, BitTorrent unveiled Sync, a synchronization client who wants an alternative to Dropbox. The latter uses the BitTorrent protocol, but does not offer centralized server. Two weeks after its opening at all, the company reported on the use of its application, and the results appear to exceed their expectations. Indeed, 1 Po (or 1,000 TB) of data was exchanged during this time, more than 70 TB per day.

 Some wondered how the company can get this kind of information and what exactly where the details collected. To answer these questions, it has updated the ticket and gives some explanation: "We have some general statistics on the application; we do not have access to private information." It then adds the Sync client periodically checks for new updates are available and then he took the opportunity to send "anonymous statistics" with, for example, how the data is transferred, the file size and the number files synchronized. As pointed out by a user on the forum of BitTorrent, the Sync client performs indeed queries on server via a very special URL, in which there are some details: BitTorrent states that this information has been deliberately left visible to the user: "This is the only information we collect and how we use, and we have deliberately left open. In this way, you can easily check that we do not have access to private information, just general statistics on the application. “ Anyway, some would certainly have liked to disable this option, which does not appear in the current state of things possible, perhaps in a future update?

Five American pornographic production studios are on the dock. They are accused of extorting money from Internet users who downloaded their movies illegally.

The studios have complained so wanted to do themselves justice, but by using the passage. To find people who looted their property, they hired more people to "locate IP addresses associated with the use of a file-sharing software like BitTorrent. "

Streaming represents 50% of Internet traffic

The latest report on Internet traffic published by Sandvine, specializing in networks, shows that the streaming represents a majority of bandwidth consumption today before P2P. The live video streaming on the Internet account represents 50% of the bandwidth on the Internet in North America, Latin America and Europe. This shows the usual changes of users, who are increasingly moving toward these services, rising well ahead of services such as BitTorrent (17.23%). However, streaming is not used for illegal practices, as the U.S. service broadcasting is Netflix movies on its own 29.7% of the bandwidth consumption in the United States during peak hours.
