Monday we reported about the first appearance of what appeared to be Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith on the Bit Torrent network. After a twenty-something hour download, many reports have come in that the torrent file is a fake, containing a 700mb info file and a 450kb mpg. This is what is called an anti-torrent, which could have possibly been created as a diversion by the studio or MPAA. If you remember, the same thing happened on the MP3 file sharing networks with corrupted song files. If this is indeed a step taken by the studios or MPAA, I'm pretty sure this would be their first attempt of this kind on the bit torrent networks. I have recieved e-mails saying that there is a real file out there. Where? Again I can't say due to the DMCA. I'm sure the discussion will continue on the boards and on IRC...
