that have less than 300 peers" ...not "less than 300 torrents".

It's still inconsistent but on torrents with less than 300-500 peers, we
do fairly well. We estimate that we block between 50-80% that are less
than 300 torrents. Anything over that many peers is a crapshoot still.
And this is with the system almost cleared out and having only 200
unique torrents. The more projects we add, the lower we can expect our
interdiction to be.

Randy -- We'll have to add some projects.

Tabish -- How's the interdiction system handling the current load? Has
the system stabilized?

Do you think you can get the germans to test this using uTorrent? I
think that our interdiction on uTorrent is the most impressive display
of our technology right now.

FYI, please see below.

Any projects you can recommend for the Germans to have a look at? A
list of the sites we protect on would also be helpful.

Many thanks,

One other thing on Torrents...

I'm trying to big up your protection to the Germans, they have not been
running many projects recently and I'm trying to get them back on board.
However, they are asking a lot of questions about torrent protection and
want to look at a project we are current running to see what it looks
like. So, to help you look good...can you give me the name of one of our
titles that you are doing best on in the torrent area?

Also, please keep me cc'd on any correspondence on the Tocotronic leak.
