Game Company Offered Fair Play With P2P

Game Company Offered Fair Play With P2P

Game companies have been using P2P-powered solutions increasingly over the last years in order to deliver games and other content like updates to their customers. However, regardless the fact that the use of P2P might be beneficial for both publishers and consumers, some game companies still lack privacy, transparency, and control when using peer-to-peer networks. Today newly published best practices are intended to change the situation.

Users usually praise those game companies that adopted P2P-based solution to distribute their material. When using P2P, the companies are able to save resources, while users can see improvement in download times. But, at the same time, there’s also a dark side of this system.

Although P2P technology can be used with bringing lots of benefits, it is rarely implemented bearing the interests of gamers in mind. Actually, they are often abused as cheap bandwidth sources by corporations, and it usually happens without their knowledge.

For example, Akamai, one of the largest content delivery corporations, developed a P2P-based product – NetSession Interface – which is quite abusive towards gamers. In fact, the program is installed as a Windows service, which is always running in the background. Meanwhile, most users are unaware is this, because the software doesn’t show up in task manager, and it’s not mentioned in the company’s EULA. This application is also used by game publishers like NetDevil, Kuma Games, and Aeria Games. The gamers don’t have any visible indicators or user controls, while the program simply uses their upload bandwidth for delivering content to other users upon the completion of the download.

To address this problem, Solid State Networks, another game publisher company, has released a best practices document, highlighting the necessity of providing users with transparency, privacy, and control over their resources. This is undoubtedly a great initiative which the gaming industry should adopt in the interests of their users.

Moreover, Solid State Networks has already released their own P2P-based delivery that adheres to all directives mentioned above. We only may hope that all the other P2P-based solutions existing today will be adopted to become fair, too.

If it is as stated in the article; that this software is installed as a service and is never even mentioned in the EULA; giving the user a choice to agree or disagree with the terms of the EULA. This is then under the law called "theft of services"...
What this is you download a game and this software; install the game and this software is also installed without your knowledge; this isn't abuse by the company; it is fraud...

You pay for your bandwith monthly and this company is stealing bandwith with out again your knowledge..
This is the same as telemarketers calling you on your cell phone; you are paying for an unsolicited call..

It also seems this software is version of a "rookit"; Sony SecureROM is a rootkit software. Many IT people state the only way to really get rid of "rootkits" is by wiping your while system and doing a clean install.
