P2P networks deal with delivering large files to massive number of users. Hence piracy is the main source of violations of the content distributed within the boundary of a P2P network. The paid clients called the colluders illegally share copyrighted files with unpaid clients called pirates. We propose a technique to stop illegal file downloading by the pirates. The pirates are detected by the use of time stamped tokens assigned to each peer in the network. Detected pirates will receive poisoned chunks in their repeated attempts. We propose a content poisoning approach to stop copyright violation of P2P network. Thus pirates are not provided with a chance to download file successfully in tolerable time.
