Odd Coupling May 12, 2006

Can’t say I disagree that this partnership is sort of silly:

    So to summarize, the movie industry spends millions upon millions to ty to stop piracy and train consumers into thinking that piracy is wrong. Along come Warners and Bittorrent. They sign a deal and promote it everywhere. People who want to read the press release or download the technology get taken right to a website that without apology promotes the theft of content.

Plenty of ways to distribute movies online without promoting piracy. I’m pretty bearish on legalized music P2P sites, but at least most of the ones that are changing their stripes are also taking steps to interdict piracy.
