P2P file-sharing poses a number of serious problems for business network administrators including: unpredictable network usage, increased vulnerability to security threats and the danger of legal action. Due to these problems, most businesses attempt to restrict the use of P2P. This paper and the associated demonstration explore the nature of business participation in P2P and particularly highlight the effect of viral media on the participation of large businesses in P2P networks.
