Scene Group Received Zero Donations

A network of “pirate” release groups mostly sharing content among each other is referred to as The Scene. Money is rarely discussed there, but one of the groups has broken the rule and called for Bitcoin donations. However, the call went unnoticed so far. Perhaps, this is because The Scene members are highly organized and only share content among themselves, “racing” against each other trying to be the first to release a certain title. Most release groups only value reputation, while money doesn’t play a major role. Of course, it is needed at least to purchase equipment, but the topic is generally not discussed. However, a relatively new TV Scene group “spamTV” asked for support in their release notes. Given that Scene releases are supposed to stay private, one may wonder who the call is for.

Actually, donations are usually more common among other pirate sources – for example, peer-to-peer groups, distribution groups, and torrent site owners often ask their users to contribute to their operation and donate some Bitcoins. The problem is that pirates are not the most generous people (otherwise they would have paid for legal content), and therefore the income from donations is not big. For spamTV, it’s even worse – after listing their call for Bitcoin donations in a number of releases, they haven’t received a single penny.

Although spamTV was not the first group to ask for Bitcoin donations (PoWeRUp did the same a couple years ago), this time the reason to ask for support was to pay for the “hobby.” Apparently, the group has put up with reality and decided to stop asking for donations in the future.

No avatarI may be the minority but if I would choose a bootleg over a real if I was going to purchase. I would probably buy the bootleg, because often they are better. As for donations, if I liked their work and could afford to donate, I might would. MAFIAA already has too much money anyhow.

Irascible avatarThey missed the whole F N point of the thing..it aint about money or profit its about sharing mate! Sharing thats what the original pirate Robin Hood did for a release group to solicit for donations goes against the very core principles of P2P and true file sharing...
