Users in multimedia social networks actively interact with each other. It is crucial to study the complex user dynamics and analyze its impact on the performance of multimedia social networks. This paper uses multimedia fingerprinting as an example and studies user dynamics in colluder social networks. During collusion, a group of attackers collectively attack multimedia fingerprinting system and use multimedia content illegally. This paper analyzes the incentives of cooperation among attackers and investigates how colluders form their coalitions to maximize their payoffs.
