bittorrentThe peer-to-peer file sharing service BitTorrent is introducing a new gated system that could, in theory, allow studios and record labels to charge users for access to movies, music and shows. They’re calling it the BitTorrent Bundle.

“The Bundle format allows creators to require an action before users can download. That means creators can require a payment, a pay-what-you-want fee, or email registration, for example. It’s part of BitTorrent’s effort to disassociate itself from piracy and become a service content creators can use to their advantage.”

KCRW’s Steve Chiotakis discussed this latest development, and how Hollywood will respond, with Adrianne Jeffries, reporter for the tech site The Verge.
