"If other means of delivering media files could be compared to a postal system with an identifiable sender and receiver, then Blubster's proprietary MP2P network could be likened to throwing a bottled message into the vast ocean," said Pablo Soto.

The initiative won't stop in Washington D.C., said Pablo Soto, a Madrid-based developer of file-sharing technology Blubster.European firms are forming a lobby group in Europe with plans to work with the U.S. group.
"We are joining forces to make the U.S. Congress and the European Union listen to us and the hundreds of millions of voters who use our services," Soto told Reuters.
Soto said details on the coalition will be released as soon as late July.He would not say if the group had hired a lobbyist, nor how many file-sharing firms were involved.
The recording industry is stepping up the heat on file-sharing outfits, claiming they are opening the floodgates to Internet piracy, a phenomenon that is eating into CD sales.
Last week, the Recording Industry Association of America said it would take individual file-sharers to court in an effort to clamp down on the daily flow of millions of unauthorized exchanges.
The International Federation for the Phonographic Industry, a global trade group that counts hundreds of independent and major music labels such as Sony Music 6758.T and Universal Music EAUG.PA V.N as members, has also vowed to keep legal pressure on the firms.
Soto argued that there are legitimate uses for the technology that could be snuffed out if the law suits are successful.
He added the group does not intend to seek changes to existing copyright laws.He said the primary aim is to protect the privacy of individual users and keep them out of court.
"It's something we've got to do," Soto said. http://asia.reuters.com/newsArticle ... storyID=3013148

Blubster developer Pablo Soto of Madrid said his music-swapping service relaunched today as a secure, decentralized system providing users with anonymous accounts.
The MP2P network (short for Manolito Peer-to-Peer) on which Blubster is based consists of more than 200,000 users sharing over 52 million files, according to Soto.The update is also said to include a new, streamlined file-distribution method that disassociates transfers from specific users.
"The biggest privacy weakness of our previous version was the ability to query a list of shared songs for any user -- now that can be disabled," Soto said.

"As a leading P2P file-sharing network provider for the European market, we wanted to give our users a cutting-edge utility that will notify them about security outbreaks in real time and help to protect them from multiple Internet threats," said Pablo Soto, CTO, Optisoft S.L., creator of Blubster."With the SecurityCenter, we give our users a value-added feature they can use to protect themselves while sharing files with others."
Blubster chose to offer the McAfee.com SecurityCenter to help prevent the spread of computer viruses and other security threats that may be allowed to propagate through file-sharing environments in which users regularly share files with strangers over the Internet.
Once Blubster users have installed the McAfee.com SecurityCenter, they may take advantage of its set of innovative security tools to alert and inform them about various Internet threats in real time, quickly determine their vulnerability to those threats and gain access to vital security information through the McAfee.com Virus Information Library and World Virus Map.The SecurityCenter additionally offers easy access to powerful solutions to secure their PCs and free trials of managed security solutions including McAfee.com VirusScan Online, McAfee.com Personal Firewall, McAfee.com Privacy Service and McAfee.com SpamKiller.
TheStar.com - A new shield for file sharers: Privacy

They are more than disgusted with the threat of lawsuits," said Pablo Soto, chief programmer and co-founder of Madrid-based Optisoft.
...
The new upgrade, which goes into effect shortly, should shield MP2P users from future lawsuits, Soto said.
"I do not think it will stop the RIAA from suing our users.But if any of our users has the balls to go to court, I don't see any way on the planet for the RIAA to win," Soto said.
The RIAA, however, recommends taking any claims of anonymity with a grain of salt."More often than not, these are marketing ploys rather than a genuine technological capability," a Recording Industry Association spokesperson said.
Relaunching later this month, MP2P will offer those using it the closest thing yet to anonymous sharing of music files with other computer users, he said.
...
The 24-year-old Soto said his new file-sharing network offers two layers of camouflage.
Each user is assigned multiple Internet protocol (IP) addresses to mask precisely who is trading what file at any one time.
And, the files zipping around the network are disguised to look entirely generic to the outside observer.
"With the files, you get a user ID and some data, but that data looks bogus," Soto said.
The multiple Internet protocol addresses, he explained, are pulled from other users on the network at the same time, thus distorting the activities of individual file sharers to the outside observer.
There is a serious flaw, Soto admits.
Light users, who at the moment are not being targeted in the lawsuits, could be rounded up alongside other MP2P users who share hundreds or thousands of music tracks through the network.
But, he reckons, it makes it four times more difficult for a copyright holder to trace the activities of file-sharers.
