Comedian Louis CK to Web: Please Don’t Torrent This Video

Comedian Louis CK livestreamed and now sells Live at Beacon Theater Performance at his site for $5. On Twitter he begged: Please don’t torrent this video. Way to get someone to torrent your video.

Two funny things I took from from comedian Louis CK’s live stream of his Live at Beacon Theater event Saturday: First he took to Twitter to plead with viewers not to rip him off and torrent his video. And two, the comedian didn’t DRM protect it. Hmm.

Outtakes of the performance are available for $5 at his website today. I’m predicting someone will in fact torrent the video.  We’ll see. Happy Sunday from!
