Unprecedented defense

From Wired, the developer of a (way cool) Android app for initiating torrent downloads through a phone barcode scanner defends himself against possible (i.e. certain) illegal use

"I could feel bad about creating a tool that could be used for piracy," says the 23-year-old Holmes, a Bournemouth University software systems student. "However if I didn't create the tool, someone else would have."

If I didn't point out that this defense against immorality has been seen before, someone else would have.

Separately, the use case would benefit from an identity/security layer as provided by Multi-Device SSO.
