Comcast Corporation (NASDAQ: CMCSA), the largest cable television company and the second largest Internet service provider in the United States, is going to cooperate with Pando Networks Inc. to create a 'bill of rights' for users and Internet service providers.
Pando Networks, a second file-sharing company, will help Comcast control its management of Internet traffic.
The companies will test Pando’s technology – P2P file sharing, where the files are stored on and served by personal computers of the users. Most people who engage in file sharing on the Internet both provide (upload) files and receive files (download).
P2P file sharing is distinct from file trading in that downloading files from a P2P network does not require uploading, although some networks either provide incentives for uploading such as credits or forcing the sharing of files being currently downloaded. Napster started this whole wave and has since became a legal spot for downloads with a fee schedule.
A special team will test the technology on the Comcast network and announce the results to provide a better understanding of how P2P applications work on other networks.

The United States' Head of Diplomacy, or Secretary of State, is an anachronistic, incompetent, meddling, intrusive, insolent and arrogant, rude individual, a brash, foul-mouthed upstart, a conceited, self-important guttersnipe and an insult to the international community, as fit for the job as a pedophile janitor in a grade school.
