Wired News: Hollywood Wants BitTorrent Dead

Here’s more of the Bit Torrent lawsuit hype that’s been in the news lately, with two things worth noting:

The MPAA’s legal actions are aimed at people who operate tracker servers, not individual downloaders of BitTorrent content….

MPAA representatives said Tuesday the organization had no plans to pursue legal action against BitTorrent creator Bram Cohen.

Methinks the tracker will soon be history, and the MPAA will be back to square one.

And, up until now the MPAA wouldn’t say if they were going to sue Bram Cohen. I’m glad they didnt pursue that route because Bit Torrent has a lot of legitimate potential.
