Captain’s Launch!

September 25th, 2009 at 7:16pm | 18 Comments

Hello everybody!

Today marks the launch of the PPCA’s Creative Commons torrent tracker. We have launched this as a way way of showing the world that P2P technology can be used to benefit artists, and to show artists how to use it as a marketing tool.

If Filesharing would be considered marketing by artists, then it would enable them quick, cheap and easy access to a global distribution network. The current distribution model is dead, the market must evolve.

    I think it’s a great move by PPoC to start a tracker. Who are you catering to though? The RIAA already have at least two Parties: the Liberals and Conservatives! Copyright law as it exists was formed by powerful lobby groups, not the people.
    I was excited about Canada’s new Pirate Party but I was hoping you would be representing the millions of Canadian ‘Pirates!’ Make a statement, let the tracker share everything. Show the world that a P2P tracker is a public service. You don’t need to ‘show’ the world that P2P technology can benefit artists…it already does benefit artists.
