BitTorrent Gets a Seller's Permit

BitTorrent Gets a Seller's Permit
Wired News, publication date: 9 May 2006
"Starting this summer, Warner Bros. will make more than 200 films available at, including blockbusters such as Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and TV shows like Babylon 5.

The pact marks a big step for Hollywood as it increasingly makes digital files of movies and TV shows available on the web because until last year, BitTorrent's software and website were considered to be aiding piracy of major studio films.


Consumers continue to want to download movies and burn copies on blank DVDs, but executives in Hollywood believe that type of service is still months, and perhaps even years, away."
