Bit-Torrenting TV Shows — Why Do It?

No Media Kings interviewed one man responsible for releasing a significant quantity of series TV shows onto Bit Torrent to find out why. It’s an interesting read:

If you try to approach file-sharing the way I do, it is a library. A library exists to provide copyrighted materials to the general public without purchasing, pending return of the item. …
While the nature of the Internet makes downloads an instant copy of the materials instead of a physical item to remove and replace, the same basic principles apply: I pay for my cable to capture the shows I want to keep from TV. I see the commercials, whether I’m watching it while capturing, or while editing it into an AVI file. I pay for the internet connection that sends it to people.
