Bittorrent is in the news today, claiming to have found the way to stop piracy and change the world of online entertainment, oh boy, what are these people wrong. Read here just a bit of their crap:
BitTorrent is the global standard for delivering high-quality files over the Internet. With an installed base of over 135 million clients worldwide, BitTorrent technology has turned conventional distribution economics on its head. The more popular a large video, audio or software file, the faster and cheaper it can be transferred with BitTorrent. The result is a better digital entertainment experience for everyone.
135 Million clients ?! yeah sure, world wide, but the world is not USA, and that is where this blog begins, they offer movies, series and other good content, sure that is true, but they only deliver it to the US. All content currently shows in big letters: US ONLY!! Now tell me what good it is for me ? I live in europe (like million of other bittorrent users) not in the US.
The entertainment industry is trying to leave europe (and the rest of the world) behind on the US, and once again they did it. And that ladies and gentlemen of Bittorrent is the reason why you company is not going to make it, and everyone will keep on downloading the ‘current’ shows without waiting for 5 years to see a new serie and see re-runs of the old seasons over and over again.
Bittorrent makes foold of its users with their press release, Bittorrent goes to the local market and sure as hell they dont have 135 million users there.
