Eric Wilkinson, the producer of the independent film "The Man from Earth", wrote an email to RLSlog in which he thanks them for the free promotion they gave him. "In the future, I will not complain about file sharing" he wrote, "when I make my next picture, I just may upload the movie on the net myself!" All the attention for his film was boosted by a positive review on RLSlog, a weblog that reviews some of the new releases on BitTorrent. It turns out that a lot of people who downloaded the movie off BitTorrent liked the movie, as they started to write positive reviews on Amazon, IMDB and other websites. Wilkinson was pleasantly surprised by all the attention. He explained in his email to RLSlog that the people who illegally downloaded his film actually helped to promote it.
