    Nowadays, people can easily watch multimedia content from the Internet. Content providers grow a successful business to provide both on-demand and live streaming content to network users. However, pirates do exist that redistribute content illegally over the Internet. Such behavior motivates content providers to find out how content is redistributed and where pirates are.
    This report analyzes the most popular way of pirating content over the Internet – peer-to-peer streaming, and presents an architecture and design for monitoring traffic in a peer-to-peer network. The architecture provides a generic solution to support indirect communication between hosts. It was implemented and deployed in both company and Amazon EC2 environments. This scalable approach is very helpful for content providers to find pirates on the Internet.
