Star Wars EP3, Threat to Corporate Networks?

The Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith is already making the rounds on torrent networks, and it makes you wonder how it is going to impact the network infrastructure. Especially the corporate networks. Forget the legal action from MPAA, it is the clogging of the pipes that will be a bigger nightmare. (It is reported that a version of the movie has already been downloaded by thousands of people.) The abnormal load posed by the file sharing activities, is all likelihood will adversely affect legitimate use of the network by sucking up too much bandwidth, says Peter Shaw, CEO of Akonix Systems who in a statement bitch slapped BitTorrent. “BitTorrent has absolutely no legitimate use in corporate networks and CIOs and IT managers should be extremely wary of its presence within the enterprise.”
