Stop The Music Sharing

A new appliance may help companies in the fight to keep illegally obtained movies and music off their networks. Audible Magic Corp. last week unveiled a copyright-sensing appliance that lets IT departments block peer-to-peer files that match registered content in its large database of copyrighted material. The CopySense Network Appliance can block transfers of copyrighted material or all file-swapping activity, limit file-sharing traffic based on bandwidth needs, and establish rules for file-sharing downloads and uploads. Audible Magic's RepliCheck database contains digital signatures for 3.7 million copyrighted songs. (For more about how the entertainment industry is protecting its intellectual capital, see "File Sharing's Close-Up," p. 38.)
