Anyone who has downloaded pirated music, video or ebooks using a BitTorrent client has probably had their IP address logged by copyright-enforcement authorities within 3 hours of doing so. So say computer scientists who placed a fake pirate server online - and very quickly found monitoring systems checking out who was taking what from the servers.
This is the teaser for the forthcoming movie The Tunnel which is taking place in the abandoned tunnels under Sidney, Australia.
What is really interesting with this movie is that it 1) will be released on BitTorrent for free and 2) at the same time become available for purchase at DVD from the distributor Paramount.
I wonder who will be scared the most? The audience that will see the movie or the traditionalists within Paramount who are facing their worst fears and taking their first steps into the totally unfamiliar and unpredictable world of P2P? ?
