uTorrent Proves Online Piracy Is Big Business, Even After Demonoid
The uTorrent shift to ad-driven revenue came quietly this month when an administrator posted an announcement on the site’s forum. Perhaps predictably, the announcement was met with a less-than-welcoming response. Many users — who illegally download movies, games, and music regularly — complained that the ads hurt the quality of their experience on the site. With users reacting so negatively, uTorrent (acquired by BitTorrent in 2006 from Windows) made ads on the site optional. Instead, it was announced that there would still be sponsored torrents (like sponsored tweets on Twitter), but users would be able to turn those off if they so choose, TorrentFreak reported.
