P5 Software™ combats Internet Piracy on Gnutella

Albuquerque, NM – August 13, 2001: America’s Multimedia Online (AMO) today announced that the Business Software Alliance (BSA), a watchdog group that represents the nation’s leading software manufacturers, will implement its P5 Software to assist in combating Internet piracy on Gnutella.

"America’s Multimedia Online is thrilled BSA will use P5 Software," said Dustin D. Brand, founder of America’s Multimedia Online. "BSA’s investigators began testing the software in July, quickly learned of its success and decided to incorporate the software into its daily activities."

"We are very pleased with America Multimedia Online’s P5 Software for Gnutella," said John Wolfe, manager of investigations for BSA. "Peer-to-peer technology and high-speed Internet connections have resulted in an increased number of people who have set up file distribution systems on personal computers and engage in copyright infringement. AMO’s P5 Software has proven to be an integral tool that helps BSA identify and track individuals who distribute pirated software on the Internet."

Gnutella has expanded to millions of active users with more than 600,000 new downloads of Gnutella software per week. The data P5 Software has gathered to date demonstrates that Gnutella is a haven for Internet piracy.
