Home > Piracy >

The MPAA and Bram Cohen, founder of BitTorrent, are giving a press conference tomorrow. It looks like they finally reached an agreement. The two have been talking for a while about the plans of the MPAA to make an online movie distrubution model.

Perhaps The MPAA is going to use BitTorrent for their online movie service movielink?

Cohen described Tuesday’s news as “building mutual trust” with Hollywood, but said the next step would be to “work with the motion picture industry to make as many movies available online as possible.”

“We have no content-distribution deals at this time. But there will be in the future,” Cohen said in an interview Tuesday. “Not tomorrow, but soon.”

How soon? “Months, not years,” he said.
