BitTorrent strikes a deal

The movie industry and the man behind BitTorrent have signed a deal they hope will reduce the number of pirated films shared on the downloading network.

The deal covers films found via the website run by Bram Cohen - creator of the download system.

It means must remove any links to pirated films made by seven Hollywood movie studios.

As it only covers the website it is unclear what overall effect it will have on net piracy.
