EarthLink SIPshare: SIP-based P2P Content Sharing Prototype

Very interesting stance taken by an ISP, at least in light of recent events. Which makes me think: it’s kind of sad that this should stand out so much.

EarthLink believes an open Internet is a good Internet. An open Internet means users have full end-to-end connectivity to say to each other whatever it is they say, be that voice, video, or other data exchanges, without the help of mediating servers in the middle whenever possible. We believe that if peer-to-peer flourishes, the Internet flourishes. SIPshare helps spread the word that SIP is more than a powerful voice over IP enabler — much more. SIP is a protocol that enables peer-to-peer in a standards-based way.
