P2P-industry is more and more organized, in order to counter the legal pressure from RIAA and other copyright organizations.
The association hopes to attract peer-to-peer network providers, software makers and Internet service providers as members. It also aims to draft content providers such as the movie studios and record labels. Ideally, members will be optimistic about the business opportunities presented by peer-to-peer technologies, but will also believe that copyright owners should be compensated for their work, according a DCIA white paper.History knows many cases where unions have made all the difference. The recording and movie industry are organized behind the powerful RIAA and MPAA, so it's very positive to see the P2P companies also taking their stand.
