The adult business fuels a lot of mainstream technology growth

Jason Tucker: "the mainstream has learned a lot from the adult business. The adult business fuels a lot of the growth of technology that exists on the internet. From streaming video, from content delivery vehicles, from content delivering networks, dealing with bottlenecks on the internet because there are so many people going to a specific ite, distributing that around. From that it's now...and then also the basic business models, the how to transact, the per click, the per impression, the upsell concept. That all came from the adult business."

(Robin Benger, 2009)

Pirate Bay: 'prosecutors misunderstood the technology'

"Swedish prosecutors dropped charges relating to 'assisting copyright infringement' leaving the lesser charges of 'assisting making available copyright material' on trial day two.

Pirate Bay co–founder Frederik Neik said it showed prosecutors had misunderstood the technology.
...
BitTorrent is a legal application used by many file–shares to swap content because of the fast and efficient manner it distributes files.

No copyright content is hosted on The Pirate Bay's web servers; instead the site hosts 'torrent' links to TV, film and music files held on its users computers."

How Bittorent Killed Television

"This talk & presentation at the Australian Film Television and Radio School is a good exploration about how the hyperdistribution techniques of BitTorrent and other technologies have shifted control away from broadcasters and television programme distributors toward the audience. More than just a critique, I provide the assembled TV executives (quite a few in that crowd) with some new techniques to keep up with their audiences in the 21st century."
(Mark D. Pesce, Australian Film Television and Radio School, May 2005)
