Pierre Priot's insight:

Kelvin Omila's curator insight, November 5, 2013 12:32 PM

in this article, Moby talks about his approval of the media sharing site BitTorrent. He goes on explaining that he is okay with fans downloading his music and he embraces the idea of his fans remaking his music. He even goes into saying that he is waiting for a "Bulgarian Death Metal Remix" on his "Innocents" bundle that he has approved BitTorrent to have.

 

Pro/Con:

In this article, it also explains how BitTorrent is trying to change the image of their company and that they are trying to be like "Google" as a search engine to websearchers and "Facebook" to the social networkers. I believe this is a good thing but as Charles Caldas(chief executive officer of Merlin, a London-based agency that negotiates digital rights deals for independent music labels) mentions "... BitTorrent could do more to discourage users’ illegal downloads. “We haven’t seen any evidence of that,” : “I don’t think they are friends."

It's clear to many artists that BitTorrent affects record sales and profits, but artists like Linkin Park and Madonna has embraced the "Bundle" idea of BitTorrent.

How to Get Free Music for Your Film from Moby « nofilmschool

How to Get Free Music for Your Film from Moby « nofilmschool | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

For independent filmmakers making non-profit films and student filmmakers working on projects, budgets can be non-existent and favors are called in left and right just to get the projects “in the can.” Inevitably, these filmmakers find themselves cutting their projects and realize they need to add music to their films, but they have nothing left in their tiny budgets. For those lucky few who happen to be amazing musicians themselves or who know really talented composers looking to showcase their work, this is not a problem. For the rest of these student and non-profit filmmakers, they now have a free, professional music resource: Moby. Yes, that Moby.

Could this be the end of cheap soundbank Moby-esques tracks?

Moby X BitTorrent: Unlock and Remix Innocents

Moby X BitTorrent: Unlock and Remix Innocents | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

On September 30th, Moby released innocents: his 11th studio album, and maybe, his most personal. A lo-fi, melodic meditation on vulnerability, it’s the record that he wanted to make. What you make of it is up to you.

Pierre Priot's insight:

If BitTorrent's a crime, then running a computer is a crime.
