Pablo Soto Bravo (born 1979) is a Spanish software developer and councilor for the municipality of Madrid for the Now Madrid party.
In 2001 he developed the .MANOLITO protocol, Blubster and Piolet - two peer-to-peer file-sharing servants.
He apparently left the MP2P Community in 2004, subsequently Blubster and Piolet slowly began to lose their user base. By the end of 2004, when discussions on P2Pforums.com were focused on whether or not Pablo had left the community for financial reasons, it was known that Pablo has a rare form of muscular dystrophy and his progressive weakness was an obstacle.
In May 2006, Pablo released Manolito, a third clone application, and new versions of Blubster and Piolet.
In June 2008, Warner Music, Universal Music, Emi, Sony and the Spanish association PROMUSICAE filed a lawsuit against his company MP2P Technologies, demanding 13 million euros for unfair competition.
In December 2011, he was acquitted about the charges of copyright violation.
