Apple Patents Technology to Legalize Music and Video Sharing

February 8, 2015

Apple is taking action to slow down piracy. The company recently obtained a patent for a technology allowing people to share music and videos with friends legally. Customers can get music and videos from friends and family instead of downloading files from iTunes or other stores by obtaining a separate license. This will save bandwidth costs as well as reducing piracy, according to Apple.

The company is taking if you can’t beat’em join’em approach when it comes to P2P technology. Users can just purchase the license, which requires virtually no bandwidth and drops the delivery costs to almost zero.

Although the piracy issue is a big issue according to Apple, streaming seems to be defeating the piracy problem. Some are questioning why Apple is taking this approach. Many questions in regards to the patent are left unanswered at this point.
