Social. Miramax Rewards Would-Be BitTorrent Pirate With Free Ticket | To. It's normal for BitTorrent users to be a tiny bit paranoid, since their activities aren't always popular with everyone. But imagine musing via Twitter that your favorite movie isn't on torrent sites yet and the next thing you know the studio is in direct contact with you, asking you not to pirate the movie - and giving you a free ticket in return.

Most people sharing files on the Internet are aware that at any time they could be being monitored by any number of anti-piracy companies, investigators or lobby groups. There can be little doubt that file-sharing forums and sites around the world are being watched to a greater or less extent for the purpose of keeping tabs on piracy. And you can safely bet that the RIAA, IFPI and MPAA will read this article, just as you are. But what if a throwaway comment about torrents via Twitter was enough to put a movie studio in direct contact with you in a matter of minutes?
