One giant step for digital media

This month has barely began and it's set to be the month that most people ,me included, would remember as the turning point for digital media distribution. Warner bros. has agreed to to start distributing movies etc using bittorent. It's like America and Britain saying that the are officially pulling out of Iraq tomorrow. Warner bros. like other Hollywood studios have been fighting bittorent especially the trackers for some time. It's definitely a step in the right direction. However it remains to be seen what the revenue generating model would be, i.e how they intend to charge and even collect cash. One way is allowing people to download the DRM'ed copy and require that downloaders purchase a key to actually watch or listen to the movie or song.
