Linux distributions were the first to really start using BitTorrent.
BitTorrent is fundamentally a delivery protocol and the company is fundamentally a delivery service.
People increasingly want to consume entertainment online, on their PCs, or on their connected devices.
There is no sustainable business model in criminalizing customers.
There isn’t just one open source license.
Open source is not a model for every business.
Open source is good for developing a community of developers early on.
The real value of open source is distribution. You get free distribution.
