coderman: "This “end-to-end” fantasy is simply historical revisionism, and we need to nip it in the bud before it does any more damage."

coderman: "We now focus on the system?s reaction to the sudden popularity of a single (new) file. This phenomenon is also called the flashcrowd effect."
coderman: "[we selected - the Lord of the Rings III movie with size 1.87 GByte - because it uses a tracker which provides access to detailed statistics"
coderman: "During the first five days, no peer finished downloading the file and the injector of the file was continuously online. This long time period provides a clear opportunity to identify copyright violators."
