Peer to peer computer file sharing

Peer to peer computer file sharing may be coming to an end. Congressman Edolphus Towns plans to introduce a bill banning the use of peer-to-peer software on all government and contractor computers and networks.

The Oversight and Government Reform Committee will continue hearings on this after Congress returns from its August recess.
