After the BitTorrent tracker website OiNK had been closed over 2 years ago, its place was taken by Waffles.fm and What.CD, each of them have been growing rapidly in size and popularity since that time.
Particularly, What.CD has come a long way in 3 years, growing from 30 thousand torrents to more than one million at the end of 2010. The operators of the site recalled that they were celebrating a milestone of 30,000 torrents in November 2007. Remaining in the shadow of OiNK, they were still enormously proud of having found their feet and ready to look forward to the future. And the website continued to grow.
Just 2 weeks later they had added another 20 thousand torrents to the website, and never stopped since then. Now, just over 3 years after the service’s conception, the operators can say conclusively that a torrent website focused on music is able to reach a milestone of one million torrents.
The service admitted it still has much work to do. Of course, they are sure that 1 million torrents is not the end, but just a “marker” showing how far the service and the community has come in the 3 years of existence. Still, the operators of the site think that it is a milestone that is worth celebrating, something real, showing just how much has been done by every member, even in the light of the entertainment industry’s propaganda.
It is widely known that What.CD and its fellow Waffles.FM are indeed great sites for music fans. Therefore it’s not surprising that their popularity is considering the wealth of new and rare music they offer to their members. Meanwhile, a still surprising thing is the RIAA’s admission that it could never replicate sites like OiNK thanks to the complexity in getting permission from a range of rights owners. RIAA president Cary Sherman said a couple months ago that the music industry is very complicated, involving a lot of various copyright owners. He indicated that there are songwriters and publishers, having a totally different set of rights than the record label and the musicians. The main problem is that everyone should agree on a new business model. At the same time, while they all refuse to provide a legal alternative to services like Waffles.FM or What.CD, those will keep providing illegal content with a great deal of success.
