Submission + - An Independent Film Producer Confronts Piracy In A Unique Way (filmmakermagazine.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Producer Matt Compton says he knew the feature he produced — a “thinking man’s horror film,” Midnight Son — would eventually be pirated. “I always knew the film would end up on the torrent sites,” he writes in an email, “and that there would be nothing I could do about it." But he wasn’t prepared for his film to show up three weeks before the film was commercially available. When that happened, Compton decided to speak to the pirates directly by posting on The Pirate Bay. I asked him a few questions about his experience in the high seas of filesharing.
