Ever since Napster made headlines in the late nineties, peer to peer sharing has become a popular way for people to share files with others from around the world. While some people use these networks to share collaborative projects and files that are in the public domain, others use them for illegal purposes. While the most common illegal use of peer to peer networks is to share copyrighted files with others, some people use peer to peer sharing to send and receive child pornography. If you have been charged with sharing illegal files on a peer to peer network, San Diego child porn defense attorney Peter M. Liss can help.
Because peer to peer networks connect one computer to another rather than connecting them through a server, the file transfers tend to be more secure, which is why people prefer to use these networks to share files illegally. Unfortunately, this security also makes it more difficult for police to investigate, resulting in innocent people being charged with file sharing crimes they did not commit. That is why it is so important to work with a top San Diego child pornography defense lawyer if you are accused of sharing obscene material through a peer to peer network.
