Woodstock Systems Introduces New Media & P2P Software
Posted Feb 14, 2003 Print Version     Page 1of 1

Woodstock Systems, the New York-based software development company, has announced the launch of its new music software.  The Woodstock PDS is among the first software to combine a full-feature media player with powerful Peer-to-Peer file lending ability.  Users of the Woodstock PDS software can play digital music, convert their CD's into MP3's, and listen to thousands of Internet radio stations. In addition, the Woodstock PDS incorporates a unique, patent-pending, file lending method that allows consumers to legally and ethically access and lend their digital media files remotely.

Woodstock's approach differs from the Napster- and Kazaa-like forms of P2P software.  For example, Woodstock's alternative to anonymous downloading promotes the concept of P2P networks among groups of friends, family, and co-workers.  In addition, the Woodstock PDS uses a method of file lending versus file copying.  This method "lends" access to a file to a user, while at the same time restricting others from accessing that file—a process that neither requires nor permits copying of any file.

Woodstock's software turns any PC running Windows into a Personal Digital Server (PDS). This enables a user to securely access files stored on his or her PC while at work or traveling.  The remote access capability may also be securely shared with friends, allowing them to access selected files on the PC running the Woodstock software.
