RE: UMG decoy presense: Timabalad - Shock Value

Just an update regarding the interdiction system:

It seems like it's stronger today compared to the past couple days.
Nothing has really changed, including the amount of torrents, so not
sure what we can attribute the higher effectiveness to. It's now
catching most of the torrents, but every now and then, there are still
times that the interdiction won't kick in at all for a torrent...even
though it's in our system. It seems to happen more often to less popular
torrents with seeds around 3-10. We've verified that the torrent it
misses are not labeled dead. We estimate it misses about 1 in 10
torrents...so not too bad....and we'll continue to monitor.

Subject: UMG decoy presense: Timabalad - Shock Value

 

Here's how our decoy presence is looking for Timbaland - Shock Value,
the last BT test that UMG did, and Gwen Stefani - The Sweet Escape.

 

We definitely need to get the effectiveness higher for Timbaland....it's
only at 20% right now. Since we just started focusing on this, we'll run
another test on Monday. Torrent team, please make sure effectiveness
gets higher by then....especially since we can't rely on the
interdiction system too much. It's kinda weak right now.

 

Gwen Stefani is at 73% decoy presence. We chose to test top 20 because
UMG doesn't really have a pattern of picking the top sorted by seeds.

 

As usual...if you'd like to see more details, see the sheets at:
