i2Hub P2P Network Shuts Down

A peer-to-peer network that took advantage of the super-fast speeds of the Internet2 research network closed it doors late Monday. Founder of the i2Hub network Wayne Chang has declined comment citing legal reasons, and the blank front page of the network's Web site now carries the message "R.I.P. 11.14.2005."

The service was one of several networks to receive a cease and desist letter from the RIAA in September. Lawsuits have already been filed against several file swappers on the network. The shuttering of i2Hub follows a Supreme Court ruling that made P2P networks liable for the actions of their users, and the closing of Grokster last week.
