“A trend has emerged among commentary in the days since Sony announced they would not release the motion picture, ‘The Interview.’ There have been calls for Sony to release the film online. And many have contacted us asking: Would they be able to release the movie using BitTorrent?
BitTorrent Bundle was designed to support free speech and open creativity, using decentralized technology to protect digital artifacts from being destroyed or censored. The BitTorrent Bundle for “The Act of Killing,” for instance, features interviews, essays and stills from videos from the award-wining documentary’s director Joshua Oppenheimer as well as Werner Herzog and Errol Morris, who served as producers of the film. It also features reporting on the impact of the film on Indonesia, as documented by TEMPO Magazine. Previous BitTorrent Bundles include the Madonna-directed “secretprojectrevolution,” which launched “Art For Freedom,” an online global initiative to support freedom of expression, and “The Lady Gaga Bundle.”
