Ok to get Japanese translator on contract? When we've had these types of questions about local p2p usage we've always either provided geoIP stats of the networks we do cover, or have someone on staff who can google in target language. If we want the latter, we'll need to get outside help; no one at MD can read Japanese well enough (the closest is a few reporters that have some experience with anime).

Good to see you all last night.


Would you be able to take some time and give me a view of how you see the P2P landscape in Japan?

I am aware of at least three networks with particular popularity in Japan - Winny, WinMX and Share.

Do you know how big these networks are? Which do you cover? Do you have local connectivity there?

How do you perceive the threat of P2P in Japan?


Any thoughts/figures you can send over to help us start to understand would be great.
