Clouseau inspects pirated P2P content

http://www.pcauthority.com.au/news.aspx?CIaNID=47592
SafeMedia has introduced Clouseau, which it claims is the first dedicated system for stamping out internet peer-to-peer (P2P) piracy.Clouseau is a network appliance deployed on subnets that aims to eradicate all illegal P2P activity and make it impossible to send or receive any illegal P2P transmissions."Billions of dollars and thousands of jobs are lost to P2P piracy. Current technology is clearly ineffective at stopping it," said Safwat Fahmy, chief executive and founder of SafeMedia."Clouseau is the best-of-breed internet piracy prevention solution designed from the ground up specifically to stop all P2P internet piracy no matter where it originates worldwide. "It is safe and invisible, causes little or no latency in the network, self-healing and user-friendly, and completely shields user anonymity."Clouseau uses fingerprinting and DNA markers to examine all incoming and outgoing packets so that illegal P2P is eradicated while legal P2P passes to its destination with no measurable delay, SafeMedia claimed."We have made Clouseau dynamically proactive, safe and hardened. Pirates are smart and innovative, and so is Clouseau," said Fahmy."Our technology is dynamic, sees through all multi-layered encryptions, adaptively analyses network patterns and constantly updates itself. Packet examinations are non-invasive and infallible. There are no false positives."

How are you going to find out the difference between legal and illegal p2p? What is legal in one country may not be legal in another. HUGE (practically impossible) implementation problems too.

"Our technology is dynamic, sees through all multi-layered encryptions, adaptively analyses network patterns and constantly updates itself. Packet examinations are non-invasive and infallible. There are no false positives."

Nice marketing nonsense, but if you were Pinocchio your nose would now reach from one side of the Atlantic to the other. Seeing through RC4 with a DH key-exchange at incredible speeds? Don't make make me laugh.

What's next, are they going to solve world hunger and break RSA-2048? :confused:

I think this will be as effective as President Bush's "immigration fence." Makes Hollywood feel safe but almost impossible to implement. There will never be another Great Wall of China, on land or in the web.

"Billions of dollars and thousands of jobs are lost to P2P piracy"

Yep, But billions of dollars and thousands of jobs are also created due to piracy.

Aspack, Silicon Realms, StrongBit, Oreans Technology and even SafeMedia itself!

Without piracy those companies wouldnt even exist(and yes our hobby would then be very boring!), so comeon dudes and dudettes, this is the way the world works ;)

A perfect balance :)
