+ - Swedish firm to offer lawful alternative to piracy

Submitted by Karol
Karol (515082) writes "A Swedish company believes it may have discovered a lawful solution to the movie industry's long-running file sharing quandary. By merging peer to peer file sharing methods with advanced watermarking technology, Stockholm firm Headweb hopes to beat the internet pirates at their own game and offer consumers a legal alternative. Customers will be given the opportunity to pay for movies, download them legally using BitTorrent technology and view them using a regular DVD player."
