Web Site Agrees to Help Curb Access to Movies - New York Times
I will agree that something has to be done, but the article misses the point of BitTorrent. It is not just movies that can be sent through BitTorrent, but ANY large file. Open Office distributes their binaries through BitTorrent, SXSW Festival released 700+ songs from participating musicians (legally), and many podcasters user BitTorrent to distribute their podcasts. Even legal movie downloads use BitTorrent. I have heard that BitTorrent is also popular in the Open Source community.
I would rather see illegal downloads get choked off (especially since I don't download them) than to see this wonderful distribution method die.
