Mihaela van der Shaar of UCLA presents this paper explaining that user-generated content can be distributed at low cost using peer-to- peer (P2P) networks, but the free-rider problem hinders the utilization of P2P networks. In order to achieve an efficient use of P2P networks, the authors investigated fundamental issues on incentives in content production and sharing using game theory. This paper presents a basic model to analyze non- cooperative outcomes without an incentive scheme and then uses different game formulations derived from the basic model to examine five incentive schemes: cooperative, payment, repeated interaction, intervention, and enforced full sharing. The results of this paper show that.
