Pirate Wil Wheaton Defends BitTorrent, Warns for Anti-Piracy Lobby

Wil Wheaton Defends BitTorrent, Warns for Anti-Piracy Lobby

Posted: 16 May 2012 01:49 PM PDT

Actor Wil Wheaton, known for his roles in Star Trek: The Next Generation, Lost and The Big Bang Theory made a few interesting comments on his blog.

He says that piracy isn’t as evil as Hollywood claims and believes that Internet providers shouldn’t mess with people’s BitTorrent traffic.

“I believe in network neutrality, I don’t believe that piracy is the end of the world as we know it (I particularly don’t believe that a download or file shared automatically equals a lost sale*) and I don’t believe in crippling the Internet to protect a business model that desperately needs to change.”

Net Neutrality should be guarded according to Wheaton, who accuses Hollywood lobby groups for wanting to shut is down.

“Some ISPs are blocking all bittorrent traffic, because bittorrent can be used to share files in a piratical way. Hollywood lobbying groups are trying to pass laws wich would force ISPs to block or degrade bittorrent traffic, too.”

“Personally, I think this is like closing down freeways because a bank robber could use them to get away, which I know is an imperfect comparison, but is the best I can do after a night of not-especially-good sleep.”

Wheaton the goes on to show his readers how to download a Linux distro. And seed it properly.

You can read the rest of Wil’s thoughts on his blog.

There have been quite a few studies that have said that piracy has no effect on sales. That if anything, it is the music lovers that share, giving others a chance to hear what they would not normally hear, that drive much of the sales for the music industry.

I've mentioned this before but in France, Hodopi was put into effect which is their version of 3 strikes and you're off the internet. After a year of it being in effect, no one has yet been thrown off the net there. But it is coming up this year.

The IFPI who pushed for and cheerleaded the effort, claimed that it was a resounding success. Only, if it was a success and the pirates were thieving without paying, why didn't the sales of music go up? Fact is it didn't.

There are a lot of studies that have been done, claiming that piracy has next to nothing to do with the profit line of big music. Read about those studies here:

Where Drew Wilson goes back over old studies that were ignored, reviewing them for what they did say and the public never heard about because it wasn't in the interests of big music. Be prepared for a long read if you are interested, he's now up to part 16 on the topic.
