Remember that study about 60 percent of all P2P downloads being porn? Turns out that this trend might be much less naughty than we all thought.

According to digital archivist Kurt Bollacker, P2P users are just trying to find ways to preserve the world's knowledge - one money shot at a time, if you will. Bollacker told CNet that archivists should look to online porn for ways to preserve art and other cultural artifacts:

"I guarantee that a wealth of pornography from the late 20th century will survive in digital distributed form (because) it's a social model that's working extremely well."

Interesting idea. I just hope this won't result in people trying to spam this blog with comments about Carl Barks instead of Briana Banks ...
