Peer-to-peer 'seeders' could be targeted. File traders who seed peer-to-peer networks with copyrighted material can be identified and traced. A California based company, BayTSP, is monitoring P2P trading networks with new software that determines which user first uploaded a particular file. Called "FirstSource", the software uses a spidering technique sending out multiple requests for a file very quickly. It can then determine the individuals having uploaded the original file by assuming that only they will have 100% of that file.
