Wikipedia defines file sharing as the exchange of files over computer networks, and peer-to-peer (P2P) networks in particular. This can be done in any number of ways; in corporate networks it is done using file servers, but on the wider Internet it more usually follows the peer-to-peer (P2P) model, where the files are stored on and served by personal computers of the users. Most people who engage in file sharing on the Internet both provide (upload) files and receive files (download)
