The Challenges of Peer-to-Peer Filesharing

This is the class web site for TC 491 P2P Filesharing, a one credit special topics course offered on a one-time basis during the spring 2004 semester at Michigan State University.

Many TISM faculty in the department participated as lecturers and evaluators of student work, including Charles Steinfield, Robert LaRose, Steve Wildman, Johannes Bauer, Thomas Muth, Dan Kim, and Gary Reid. In addition, a number of faculty and administrative staff from around Michigan State University provided guest lectures, including David Gift, the Vice Provost for Computing, Libaries, and Technology, Rich Wiggins from the MSU Computer Lab, Lorrie Hudson from the Office of Intellectual Property, and Peter Yu from MSU-Detroit College of Law. The course culminated with a symposium in mid-April, featuring John King, Dean of the School of Information at the University of Michigan, James Hilton, Associate Provost for Academic, Information and Instructional Technology at the University of Michigan, and David Gift, MSU's Vice Provost for Computing, Libaries, and Technology.
