An open question, however, is how can such communal policies be established reliably and in a scalable manner? While some communities can rely on voluntary compliance with their stated policies, voluntary compliance will not be sufficient for many future P2P applications. We illustrate the nature of policies that must be enforced to be reliable by means of an example of a community that operates like Gnutella, but which is established to exchange more sensitive and critical information than music files. Then, we propose to employ the intrinsically distributed control mechanism called Law-Governed Interaction (LGI) for the scalable enforcement of communal P2P policies.
