Definition Edit

Gnutella emerged as the first, fully decentralized, peer-to-peer protocol in 2000, and was used on the Internet to share and swap music files in the MP3 compression format.

Overview Edit

The music industry was often frustrated in their efforts to counter this peer-to-peer technology because it could not identify a main controlling source.

Gnutella also allowed Internet users to search for software and documents on the GnutellaNet, a loose federation of users and organizations that make a wide variety of information available to the world at large.
