[News] Attacks on BitTorrent Leads to Backlash from Legitimate Business

Interview With a BitTorrent Embracing Record Label

,----[ Quote ]
| The label is comprised of several bands that tour internationally and draw 
| comparisons to bands like Cursive, Explosions in the Sky and At the Drive-In. 
| The guys at the label pride themselves on Beep! Beep!âs united brand and 
| quality of music, as well as the elaborate album artwork that is part of the 
| physical releases â two characteristics that they believe separate Beep! 
| Beep! from the net labels.

How Not To Do Things: Redskins Suing Over 100 Fans

,----[ Quote ]
| We've been talking about ways that individuals and organizations can better 
| connect with fans... while also highlighting examples of what not to do, so 
| it should come as little surprise that many of you sent over the news that 
| the Washington Redskins have sued well over 100 season ticket holders, after 
| those fans faced financial hardship and were unable to pay up for new season 
| tickets, despite having signed long-term contracts at some point. The article 
| is long and detailed, and reading through the examples, the Redskins 
| management appears about as heartless as can be. The Redskins chief lawyer 
| tries to come up with excuses on each case, and it just makes the team look 
| petty. Even worse, is that he claims that every team does this, but the 
| Washington Post found most of the teams they contacted do not, and the few 
| that do, only do so in the rarest of circumstances.

| put on ISP networks by 20 to 50 percent. Based on the widely used OpenTracker
| software, the new BitTorrent tracker aims to overcome many of BitTorrentâs
| current limitations.


EU Invests $22 Million in Next-Generation BitTorrent Client

,----[ Quote ]
| A few weeks ago we reported that the EU Greens launched a pro-filesharing
| campaign named âI Wouldnât Stealâ. In a continued effort to support the
| development of P2P technology, the European Union has now invested $22
| million in the development of an open-source BitTorrent client.

| popular in the United States. For the fifth year in a row, SXSW has released
| a DRM-free, RIAA-safe collection of songs totaling 6 GB, which can all be
| downloaded for free, thanks to BitTorrent.


BBC Gets Ready for BitTorrent Distribution

,----[ Quote ]
| Today the BBC published the first episode of R&DTV, a Creative Commons
| licensed show that users are allowed to remix, redistribute and share. The
| first episode of the monthly technology show features Diggâs Kevin Rose,
| among others. The BBC hopes to use BitTorrent for the distribution of future
| episodes.
