I don't have it taken care of, though I've talked to him about why BT is different from traditional p2p several times.

Ok, if you've gotten it taken care of, I'd still like to know what he expects them to test on.

I've talked to hui at length about BT. If he doesn't get it by now, then we should outline for him Octavio's process.

Jonathan is the only one that even asks about things like that. I am amused by your presumption, however.

They're not as detail-oriented as I would like either. But presumably they understand what we can do and sell with that in mind. I'm guessing they have no leverage with the Harvey Weinstein camp.

It's not exactly cool that our sales guys are selling "bittorrent protection" with no details to us on what they are selling, and no methodology for testing, but hey.

No, this is being tested by "The Weinstein Company" which I assume is Henry Weinstein's production company, we have no methodology or list of sites or really anything for this project except turn it on April 3.

Guys, we need a lot more regular decoys for this. Torrentreactor should never be 0. There is only one real torrent on bushtorrents, we need to drown that out. Piratebay has only 3 real and no decoys, not even oldschool. This released on Friday, they will be looking, get the effectiveness up asap.

Here are the results for Grindhouse. Our effectiveness is low on TorrentReactor and Mininova. This project does not have interdiction so we are relying on our decoys.
