Tim Ferriss is an accomplished US writer, known for such bestsellers as “The 4-hour Workweek” and “The 4-Hour Body”. Now he is about to release his new book titled “The 4-Hour Chef” – quite an extravagant cookbook.
In the attempt to cope with the drawbacks of American book retailers who decided to ban Amazon published books in order to maintain book sales’ current condition, the writer has cooperated with BitTorrent Inc. Tim Ferriss believes that the very nature of publishing has fundamentally changed. He says that the business models and marketing have to reflect the consumers’ needs, which can be harnessed to hugely benefit the content creator. In the meantime, BitTorrent is a technology and ecosystem which represents the sustainable future for content. BitTorrent has also made this partnership public: they announced the release of the cookbook for people who do not normally read cookbooks, which seems be the most banned book in US history, boycotted by American booksellers.
BitTorrent claimed that disruptive voices should be heard and it’s time to shake up traditional publishing. That’s why the company is partnering with the writer and the readers in order to promote his book via BitTorrent. When the book launches, BitTorrent users will get exclusive access to media from Ferriss: from the content of the book to unpublished material. In return, the company will be asking users to support the author and the Amazon imprint. No other details of the partnership were revealed, but the company and the writer are already working on a torrent bundle for people who are interested in his book.
Actually, it wasn’t BitTorrent’s first attempt to welcome legality: they have also partnered in the past with well-known musicians in order to promote some unique content through their networks, including Counting Crows, Pretty Lights, and Death Grips. The community welcomes this move, saying that there are too many talented writers out there who never get the chance of being published.

|Indeed P2P protocol is a powerful weapon to exchange views, thoughts and express the talent inside you in front of people with a little or minimum effort. It sounds good that people are now getting interest in Bit torrent protocol. It has a huge potential in making publicity. p2p never caused loss of profit when compared to its potency to create publicity worldwide.|
Thats it .More people will learn about it there will be no need for MPAA or RIAA. Thanks SAM for the information.
|Bah!Humbug,after all it is the season.I might be a little early but. Ah!so what, humbug.|
|Really simple to publish as a pdf and distribute through Bit torrent,no printers to pay for making books and only a few mins to download on the slowest of connections,subscriptions might be the issue as once it has been uploaded there is nothing to stop anyone sharing it on through p2p which will then reduce sales as it can be openly downloaded by all.Best cookbook has Anarchists in the title .|
|Bit torrent is already used in buisness as well as a popular tool for downloading large files from legitimate sources like Linux distros,etc.I think anybody with any sense knows about the protocol by now,but given it is an efficient protocol it will always have those that wish to try and circumvent it especially American government Lackeys that cannot control,intercept or monitor it and so we have to suffer regulatory clones be they MPAA,RIAA or any of the dozens of others that seek to destroy that which all their government might cannot stop.|

|Good if BitTorrent attains legality. It would be like the starting of a new era if books are published like this.|
|Wasn't there another similar story where an author was trying to share his own work but some kind of copyright forced him to remove it? I remember seeing something along the lines of that on here|
|As many have stated already; the middlemen RIAA and MPAA and others are dumping in their drawers when Artists finally go direct to us. Cutting them out and making real money.|

|The BeeGees ? Neil Diamond ?|
Playing in Shoppingmall BarcaShow.
Complaint rises and someone hates free-to-air
and sharing again.
People rather account a royalty to shops, than have free-to-air. If Artist or even D.Js were to pay shoppingmalls, then it is O.K.
Suggestion here prompts that anyone whom records is breaking the Law, shoppingmall law, because it meant to remain part of the complex. Carrier signals also would need question and adjustment including that free-to-air.
A tollway is common here. Nationwide...At least two record buttons on cassete recorders to remind you not to break the law and... Can you think of a fair one?
An excuse ?
No. Never ? Typical.
There is just no going back, Princess.

|I know a story where an English Printing Press goes aflame. Twice, often.|

Or is that an account of forging penelty only, Mi `Lordz
