Another Investing Wave To Watch

There's a wave I discuss on my book, that relates to the ease of digital content creation and distribution. This is a blessing and a curse for content owners.

A digital product can be reproduced and shared with thousands of people with the click of a mouse. Sharing, or stealing, has never been easier.

The new "manufacturing and distributing" method is creating a huge opportunity for companies that provide digital content control technology and for law firms looking for infringers/licensing revenues.

Placing a watermark in a digital item, and tracking its movement and reproduction across the Net, will be  invaluable for any digital content owner. 

Destiny Media and their digital locking technology was responsible for shutting down Napster.

Look for this wave to get lots of traction.

I have highlighted a couple companies that have a competitive advantage in this space (link)

Major Book Publisher Files Mass-BitTorrent Lawsuit

 John Wiley and Sons, one of the world’s largest book publishers, have sued 27 BitTorrent users at a federal court in New York. The publisher claims that the defendants have shared copies of its “For Dummies” books without permission, and demands compensation.

After several movie studios started filing lawsuits against BitTorrent users last year, Wiley is the first book publisher to take this kind of action.
