The Pirate Party of Canada Launches a Creative Commons Torrent Tracker

Canada Pirates

To prove that P2P traffic can be used for legitimate purposes and not just for illegal file sharing, the Pirate Party of Canada has launched a new Creative Commons torrent tracker.

From the Pirate Party of Canada:

If Filesharing would be considered marketing by artists, then it would enable them quick, cheap and easy access to a global distribution network. The current distribution model is dead, the market must evolve.
Filesharing is the future of digital distribution, whether the music and movie industries like it or not. But while the Creative Commons torrent tracker is a great idea, I doubt it will ever actually be able to influence the industry at large.
