This week BitTorrent the ‘not only used by pirates, honestly’ software platform BitTorrent introduced a potentially revolutionary payment system. The idea is as such: give a 90% cut of all sales to the content makers/providers, all around a model that features a flexible model: you can take some content for free, get some behind a paywall.
This is an exciting alternative, and coming onto a platform that already is nestled into the hard drive of millions of media consumers (if not purchasers).
There is going to be a slow rollout of artists and features, and I think access is currently
limited, but, I expect that this will be another face of the ‘new distribution’ world we live in.
