Steal This Film

| | Comments (0)
Regardless of how you feel about the legality or ethics of filesharing of copyrighted media, you should check out Steal This Film for a straight-forward, human-scale viewpoint on where filesharing is today from the perspective of people that actively share files and the people that operate the popular Pirate Bay BitTorrent tracking site.

A low quality version of the film is available on Google Video or you can download a higher quality .mov via BitTorrent. To download a BitTorrent file I recommend one of these fine clients: uTorrent, Azureus, BitComet.

It is also interesting to look at the latest anti-piracy productions like this anti-piracy ad from Australia, and this Jackie Chan / Arnold Schwarzenegger team-up and this video titled The Global Avalanche of Piracy found in the anti-piracy section of the MPAA's website.

Test from Windows Live Writer

Tap. Tap. Tap. Is this thing on? Testing the Windows Live Writer. Allowing me to post to my blog through via an XML-RPC interface all from a purty wysiwyg UI.

You can check out the Windows Live Writer blog, or download your own free copy.

Nifty. Setup wasn't difficult and the app feels quite polished.
