Privacy for Piracy. Exclusive Interview with Suren Ter from YouHaveDownloaded

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 2 years ago

Piracy 3

An anonymous reader writes "Suren Ter discusses privacy, piracy and the future of filesharing. Suren procued the virally popular YouHaveDownloaded.com, which displays all downloads on the public BitTorrent network associated with an IP address. A very provocative read!"

"As I mentioned before, it was quite easy. When visitors search for something on the website, there’s a small pop-up that jumps out and offers you to “like us while you’re waiting”. That’s an artificial delay. We can return results in milliseconds. The pop-up and delay was my idea just to collect more likes."

This is very clever.
