Peer-to-peer (P2P) digital content distribution used to be about copyright violations, and users sending unauthorized music and videos to each other over the Internet. Now, Kontiki Inc. says it has created a way of using P2P content distribution to ease corporate network congestion, without adding new hardware. Kontiki (Sunnyvale, Calif.) claims its delivery management software enables corporations to securely distribute files among many users without the need for high-speed, centralized servers. It also claims the system is based on a P2P scheme that is legal and ultrasecure.
