How does macrovision maintain files on torrentspy?

 

Ben, please mention to John that we can automate a takedown system for
torrentspy. Tell him about our success doing this with UMG.

 

Thanks

R

Regarding BitTorrent effectiveness for Paramount, we are definitely
doing poorly. Our internal tests confirm that. What probably hurts us
the most is our 0% effectiveness on Torrentspy where Macrovision has a
semi-decent effectiveness. Also, I have a feeling that they continue to
test titles that they temporarily suspend, ie Zodiac, and include those
as part of their effectiveness calculations. Grodsky, any way we can
verify that? In their reports, they don't have break downs by project,
just by network.

 

On the p2p networks, their results look pretty much as expected. I
would've expected slightly higher on Gnutella2 (Shareaza) because our
internal tests have been looking pretty good.

 

Grodsky, if you talk to them, it would also help to get their version of
Ares and their updated server.mets.

We're beating Macrovision on Ares, eDonkey, Shareaza, and Gnutella.
Macrovision is still beating us on BitTorrent. See attached and below
for more details.

Dear John,

Attached are the reports summarizing the overall performance of each
interdiction company on all Paramount interdicted titles based on
available download information for the week ending May 25, 2007. This
represents the 24nd week for Dreamgirls, 2nd week for Black Snake Moan,
9th week for Blades of Glory, 2nd week for Year of the Dog, 16th week
for Norbit, 13th week for Zodiac, 11th week for Shooter, 6th week for
Disturbia, and 2nd week for Shrek the Third.

We have continued to present the data based on the current weeks'
results to bring in line with the presentation of the individual title
results. The results averaged over time and the results based on the
current week's assessment show some variation. MediaDefender is
currently protecting four titles, Norbit, Zodiac, Shooter, and Disturbia
with Disturbia being a recent release, while Macrovision is protecting
four titles Dreamgirls, Black Snake Moan, Blades of Glory, and Year of
the Dog. Both MediaDefender & Macrovision are protecting Shrek the
Third.

MediaDefender for the week shows better results on Gnutella, Gnutella2,
eDonkey, and Ares. In terms of performance over 6 months, MediaDefender
continues to show lower overall Conversion Index numbers on all
protocols except for BitTorrent, where Macrovision shows a lower
Conversion Index.

- this represents the best result for the week of all individual
interdiction
  companies claiming protection on this protocol under the test
conditions

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Note a. Ares protocol replaced Overnet in the week ending September 22
2006.

 

Note b. Gnutella 2 downloads commenced in the week ending August 26
2005. MediaDefender protection for Gnutella 2 commenced in the week
ending September 29 2006. Macrovision is covering Gnutella2 only to the
extent that there is any cross pollination from Gnutella and the
interdiction efforts on that protocol.

 

          - represents protocols claimed to be protected by each
interdiction company.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Note 1: There were no theatrical release titles being protected by
MediaDefender that are covered by the interdiction effectiveness
assessment from the week ending May 20 2005 to the week ending May 13
2005 and from the week ending December 30 2005 to the week ending March
3 2006.

 

 

 

MEDIADEFENDER

 

 

 

 

 

MediaDefender results include download attempts from 2004. At an
appropriate time in the next set of titles, we will rebase the analysis
to include only contemporaneous results to provide an indication of
their current capabilities.
