In this chapter we present the most significant trends in recent research in the field of content-based music information retrieval in peer-to-peer networks. Despite the diminished attention the area has received in general terms, the relatively close area of metadata MIR in P2P is by far new. As metadata prove to be inefficient for the purposes of MIR as well as the peculiarities of music in comparison to text and image data, developing dedicated solutions for CBMIR in P2P networks becomes a necessity while the challenges faced therein, unique. Depending on the type of P2P network, a number of prominent research works are presented and compared in this chapter.
