Despite the fact that anti-piracy lobbyists insist the uTorrent and BitTorrent applications are bridges for Internet piracy, BitTorrent’s chief executive officer begs to differ. Eric Klinker admitted that they hear that question all the time. The company hears that it has killed movie, the radio star and the content industry. They are also accused of being the Internet’s dark matter, and the Web’s seedy underbelly. BitTorrent claims it is not.
The outfits representing entertainment industries (Motion Pictures Associations of America and Recording Industry Association of America) had long tried to close the company down, together with its spearhead application, uTorrent. Currently, it’s believed that uTorrent accounts for more than 150 million registered users, most of which are suspected of downloading copyrighted material.
Anyway, Klinker is going to change that perspective by starting a new site named “Does BitTorrent Equal Piracy”. He claims that the BitTorrent involves scientists, engineers, developers and designers committed to creating a better web. The team of BitTorrent informs that they are photographers, musicians, writers and gamers who came to work at the company because they wanted to change the way the web works for them and for everyone. BitTorrent neither endorses piracy nor encourages it. E company doesn’t point to piracy websites either. And, of course, they don’t host any infringing material.

|the movie and music industry killed themself when they started ripping people off. 99% of the time you want to see a new film you have to watch it in 3d at the cinemas which is £11 and nobody wants 3d films and nobody wants to pay silly money for something that isnt even really coming to you so everybody just torrents it.In britain a 3d film costs £3 more than a 2d in cinemas and buying a blu-ray dvd costs £13-£18 why should i pay silly prices like that to watch 1 film when ive got bills to pay for.|

|If they earned from Bit torrent they would allow it simple greed|
|Went to see The Hobbit at the theatre with 4 people. Paid $47 in tickets alone, over $50 for popcorn drinks and $10 in gas. I would gladly pay if my job paid decently and they don't i guess i should be thankful i have a low paying job. Oh and on another note after new years my company told us we're all getting pay cuts due to economic problems.|

|Haven't they learned already. Kowtowing to Hollywood does nothing to keep them from focusing on you. In fact this nonsense probably smells like blood in the water to these sharks. Good luck utorrent, after doing this I doubt that you will even be around in 3 years. Way to go focusing all their attention on you.|
|Torrent applications are just tools and to imply that they are illegal in any shape fashion or form is not true.|
It is the same with Guns ,guns do not kill people ,people kill people,the gun is just a tool.
Surprisingly if they took into account all the Linux distribution,Corporate files and other legitimate uses of torrent applications they would find that it is a secure transport and not remotely illegal by virtue of what it does.

|fiercely agree with crazymichael|
|I am on the fence with this one because it is actually illegal to obtain usually paid for items for free (Copyright Infringement), On the other hand I don't agree with paying ridicules amounts of money that can be spent more wisely.|

|@crazymichael: "3d at the cinemas which is £11 and nobody wants 3d films" tell that to the people that seen the Hobbit opening night, it was 3D only and it broke record sales. stop bitching about going to theaters and paying Hi prices for 3D already.|
@gargoyle36: yep I stopped paying a long time ago....even before I took a pay cut and then lost my job.
@razor2601707: "because it is actually illegal to obtain usually paid for items for free (Copyright Infringement)" so IF my friend gives me a movie/music cd/game he and I are both infringing on copyrights? UM NOPE......its obvious you don't know what "copyright infringement" means.
who cares really, I don't even use the new versions of Utorrent and that's what they are talking about.....the new add supported *tracked* version of the software.
|YEAH,! i'm wit ya @clamo:.."the new ad supported *tracked*version,,,lmao;notice Utorrent revealing what they're about,gradually|
