Is BitTorrent Realizing That Its Advantage Is In Distribution Technology, Not DRM-Laden Stores?
from the hindsight dept
Since then, BitTorrent (again, the company, not the technology) has been almost totally lacking from any discussion about downloadable movies.
So, it's hardly a surprise to hear that the company is laying off a bunch of employees, focusing mainly on its sales and marketing staff. This likely means one of two things: that its business is not doing particularly well, and senior management has decided to scapegoat sales and marketing under the false belief that a new team will somehow magically make things work, or that it's realized this was a bomb of a business model and is about to move in a totally different direction, that requires different skills on the sales and marketing side.
