ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the new Internet video venture, code-named Venice Project, of European entrepreneurs Janus Friis and Niklas Zennstrom in the U.S. The project aims to follow the video sharing Web site YouTube, but will use a software that would allow computers which are connected from the Internet to pass videos. The peer-to-peer architecture adopted by the company could help prevent lawsuits because of its claimed legality in the U.S. and Europe.
