    TorrentFreak News: file sharing, torrents and the copyright world.

    Those who aren't following the recent news updates on [Hidden link. Register to see links.], here are the latest articles that may be of interest or concern to you.

    The new vote said 19-12. The amendment was defeated by 19-12, and the draft report recommending a rejection of ACTA was adopted by the same numbers.

    Thunderous applause interrupted the session. WE WON!

    So what does this mean? The ironic thing is that it doesn’t really mean much in terms of the adoption or rejection process. ACTA is such a high-profile issue that people are already decided, quite regardless of the committee recommendation. But it does give you an indication of how the majorities lie — and what the vote in plenary in about 10 days will look like.

    After earlier attempts through other courts and processes, two of the key figures behind the creation of The Pirate Bay have announced what could be their last throw of the dice to avoid imprisonment. Peter Sunde and Fredrik Neij, two of the co-founders of the infamous torrent site, have now filed appeals with the European Court of Human Rights.

    In the coming months U.S. Internet providers will begin to warn and punish copyright infringers. Since the “six strikes” plan was announced, a lot has been said about the temporary disconnections and throttled connections subscribers might be subjected to. But there is an even scarier outlook for persistent BitTorrent pirates, as the MPAA and RIAA have negotiated the right to demand the details of repeat infringers should they decide to take legal action.



    Thoughts? Opinions? Updates you've gathered elsewhere?
    Is the future for pirates on its way to a dystopian and shady state?

    I haven't heard a peep about the ISP monitoring since that first say a few months ago that it would start in July.... I find it strange that they want to scare people off from 'pirating', yet they won't make the threats public?

    "We don't want you to pirate........so we made rules.... but we'll make sure you know that when we come and arrest you".....

    The ACTA thing is highly encouraging. Europe, give yourself a round of applause! The development in the Pirate Bay saga is quite troubling, though.....Are you telling me they've lost on a national level so badly they have to go pan-national (EU)?

    The ISP monitoring thing will only apply to Bittorrent so far, correct?

    EDIT- That's the whole point, Chocolate. :/ This isn't about moral standing, it's about control and money. They don't want you to simply *not pirate*, they want you to know and accept the fact that your wallet is their bitch. Intimidation goes a way towards accomplishing that. They don't want you knowing when and how they'll be watching, because that's the first step to cutting them down to the size they really are; fat lazy money whores in suites and ties.

    Oh, I assure you, the wrath of my God is much more painful than anything you've ever conceived, much less experienced. Death will be something to savor...

    Gay porn to be the next Megaupload fiasco?

    Oron is in turmoil over Corbin Fisher porn company... if CF is your thing.

    Personally, I don't care much about CF. More of a Cobra, FraternityX, Sean Cody, Chaos Men, Falcon, and Czech Hunter fan myself.
    Go away CF. shoo.




    In other news, your ISP is no longer yours.

    1. how dare any government censor art, music and media of any type
    2. how dare they take two men to court over what users post on their website...by the millions
    3. how dare the movie companies charge me $12 for a crappy movie and the same price for a bag of popcorn. They wonder why people pirate things?
    4. how dare the itunes charge you full price for a 250kbps quality album...

    sad world we live in, gone are the days of making art for the sake of making art, and not just to make money, star trek got it right, they should do it to better themselves and because they love it, not to make millions and then cry when you make a crappy movie or album and charge people full price for it.

    Mine hasn't - in fact, they went to court here in Australia over the issue, and won, and for the exact reasons stated in that article CM: [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    There is hope after all.

    FINALLY! Someone talks sense.
    They focus too much on torrent sites and the main file sharing sites.
    There are professionals who depend on the services provided by the file hosters for LEGITIMATE reasons.
    Much of the greatest software to break through the ice shelves of this mundane world of technology will use some of the file hosters for samples, backups and distribution.
    The file hosters don't so much "harbor" such pirates as they cannot fully and legally ascertain the exact contents that are being uploaded.
    There's too many legal concerns when it comes to that.
    There are services that act like Anti-Virus programs (with user-based databases and hash checksums) that would help spot the pirated content.
    But that service itself is costly to the file hosters, thus costly to the consumers, even the innocent.

    They should attack the ports where pirates meet, where word spreads around of where one might find something that one might be wanting.

    You know, the more I ponder, the more I think Industry has to go and fuck themselves in the ass... and then sell the movie. I would pay for that.

    It's a pain to go through with google translate.

    Morons. The lot of them.


    I hate it when people start saying shit like "that's like serving beer over wine".
    The two are distinct in flavor, but both create fools.
    Doesn't matter if you're a peasant on the streets or a whore in fancy clothes in your own privacy.

    "Art" is thrown around too much when there is none left in this world.
    Porn wasn't meant to be artistic or tasteful. Just a good jerk off to a fantasy you're not living.
    Who you fuck is "artistic".

    Call a movie a piece of art and a pornographic movie a piece of shit as you will, they both are created by studios who pay to have their content copyrighted.
