Radiohead Charity Launched On P2P

Radiohead Charity Launched On P2P

A year ago, Radiohead performed at a charity concert in the US in response to the emerging tragedy from the earthquake in Haiti. Within the last year, footage of the event has been painstakingly compiled by the band’s fans and now their twin DVD has been released, endorsed by Radiohead. Unsurprisingly, all proceeds will go to charity. Looking for the fastest way of acquiring the DVD? Welcome to BitTorrent!

Three year ago, the UK band Radiohead was first to go against the grain and offer their latest album to the audience through the Internet in terms of “pay-what-you-want” business model. In result, their 7th studio album sales broke the 3 million copy barrier.

Today Radiohead are back supporting a similar but this time an altruistic model for a DVD. Their performance at the Haiti Relief concert in LA was filmed and audio recorded by the band’s fans. Of course, that footage went on to be scattered far and wide, but three of the fans managed to collate the video and audio into a twin DVD set of the event. The event itself was limited to only 1,400 people present. The fans later decided to publish the work online for the masses, but supported by an idea to do it for charity.

They explain that the event was actually a “special show with a special purpose”, which was to raise funds for people who lived through the devastation. This way, it seems logical that the fans’ DVD carries on some of similar goals.

With this plan in hand, the fans approached the band for the approval. They also asked to which charity Radiohead would like to forward donations. Musicians chose Oxfam to handle donations on behalf of Haiti.

Usually, even if you are making a charity product, you will first need huge funds just to produce a physical product and then get it delivered throughout the globe. However, all this is not required with the magic of BitTorrent. On the opposite, the costs of distribution through the Internet drop to fairly nothing, which means that every penny will go in the right direction.

The fans in charge have chosen a range of BitTorrent trackers to distribute their creation. The list includes the signup-only Zombtracker, and one of the most popular trackers, KickassTorrents. Users who download a DVD will find there an official Oxfam donation link, along with a copy of the full video. In addition, video can be found on YouTube, to stimulate people download and give generously.
