Hacking piracy: a public-private legal P2P VOD

O2 Play, distribution hub of the company behind CITY OF GOD, Spcine, São Paulo’s public cinema company, and Hacklab, a Brazilian tech company, are partners in a public-private legal P2P VOD platform for independent Brazilian movies. By adapting free software that streams movie’s directly in the browser through torrent technology, the SPCINE PLAY project is lowering costs and creating a network to deliver and rent high quality content to the population as well as free content to schools and NGOs.
