Abstract

An issue factually challenging the peer-to-peer nature of the Internet is the increase of spam trafficking. Having reached record levels at the beginning of this year, it raised consciousness that Internet communication was endangered by an erosive threat similar to the uncontrollable, massive free circulation of MP3s that devastated the musical industry. Recent combined advances in the software industry and in the legal front have reduced the phenomenon. The technical, social, financial and legal parameters of this campaign are examined in this paper under the prism of a networked economy.
