Scavenger Hunt Activity: Peer-to-peer file sharing.

Description: This activity was designed to help familiarize you with the nature of peer-to-peer file sharing, including what it is, how it has evolved, and the its legal ramifications. Note: Within this document I will henceforth abbreviate ‘peer-to-peer’ as P2P.

Target audience: This activity is appropriate for all individuals that have at least a basic understanding of the internet and what it means to transfer files.

Instructions: Below you will find a series of 10 questions, listed in logical order. Your goal is to answer those questions using the web pages that I have provided. There are also three YouTube videos at the bottom of this page that are relevant to this topic. Before you begin, please download the worksheet document that you will use to record your answers. When you are finished, check the answer key to see how you did. All links will open in a new window or tab.
