Elevate your enterprise data technology and strategy at Transform 2021.

bittorrent_logo.gifBitTorrent, the hot peer-to-peer company stirring the pot in the video world, is moving to Silicon Valley. Previously, they were based in Washington state, which is one reason we haven’t written about them much. Great piece here, if you’re not familiar with the BitTorrent protocol.

The latest excitement stems from BitTorrent’s entry into the search space. And some say it’s only time before the company gets sued, as this good summary by Matt over at TechDirt points out. Thanks, BitTorrent, for keeping the Bay Area at the center of controversy. So much for improved relations with Hollywood…

Question: Who’ll make more money off of this one? Ask Jeeves, which will provide the sponsored search results for BitTorrent’s engine, or Silicon Valley lawyers?
