It seems some Russian chaps have created a tool that  busts up torrent swarms.

A team of Russian developers is touting a technology it says can kill off BitTorrent-based P2P file sharing – and says it has attracted investment from Microsoft.

According to a story in Russia Beyond the Headlines, the technology developed by Andrei Klimenko, his brother Alexei, and Dmitry Shuvaev has attracted $US100,000 from Microsoft’s seed investment fund, and another $US34,000 from the Bortnik Fund.

The company they have founded, called Pirate Pay, also claims to have conducted successful proof-of-concept tests, blocking “50,000” downloads of the movie Vysotsky: Thanks go God I’m Alive in the month after its release.

I find it funny that anytime someone modifies something to do something else they pretend its some new "technology" its clear here that this is not and is simply a protocol based DDos attack , nothing new in that nor worth so much money unless you want to pretend later that you didnt know what it was doing when it breaks the laws of half of europe and you will want some deniability and to blame the guys you brought it from...  :/
