BitTorrent verdict

Recently, a man in Hong Kong was convicted for illegally sharing movies through BitTorrent, and it is probably the first case where BitTorrent technology is involved. I only have two things to say about this:

The movies he shared
If someone is sharing movies like Daredevil and Miss Congeniality, I guess you need to be punished in some way…
Newspaper reports
Why are most newspapers referring to BitTorrent as a program all the time, while it’s actually a technology? Is it because there’s a client named BitTorrent as well, and it takes too much research to be able to tell them apart?
