“Luddite” Artists Point Out That BitTorrent Doesn’t Know Shit About Their Own Technology.

Like Germans BitTorrent is “mostly unitentionally  funny.”*  The  company has decided that they should attempt to legitimize their artist exploiting torrenting system with a charm offensive by buying billboards in Los Angeles.  Check this one out.

It seems to me that BitTorrent is suggesting that by using their product you are somehow safe from snooping by the NSA.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Nope you aren’t even safe from a so-called luddite musician. Check it out.

Here are the IP addresses, ports  and some sample Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven songs being hosted and illegally torrented by 33 Bit Torrent users.  This is using one of the vast number of tools available to snoop on Bit Torrent traffic–think the NSA doesn’t use this for jihadi communications????

And to the folks illegally sharing my music?   You might want to ask what other naughty stuff I can see on your computer?

Seriously, if I could figure this out in 20 minutes how hard is it for the NSA? FBI? Local PD? Hacker?

Apparently BitTorrent doesn’t even understand how it’s own product works. Luddites.

*No offense Germans, I’m simply paraphrasing my favorite German Author Thomas Meinecke.

  1. Unbelievable torrent hypocrisy.
    Pirate’s personal data should belong to them, but my creative work belongs to everyone and anyone. Yeah right!
