GigaTribe is a peer-to-peer file sharing network. Originally developed in France (2005), its American version was launched in November 2008. It offers free and paid versions; with the paid version users may restrict access to their encrypted files to a group of trusted friends.
In 2010, a U.S. federal judge ruled that reasonable expectation of privacy does not extend to GigaTribe file sharing. In the case, an informant gave police access to his GigaTribe friends' files, and child pornography was subsequently discovered.
