I forgot one mo muthafu*kin thing. A guy in a earlier post actually recommended usin Peerguardian...which is a good thing. That was after he said that IRC is untraceable or touchable or prosecutable whatever who gives a fu*k.

RUN PEERGUARDIAN OR PROTOWALL and you'll notice 1 very obvious thing. Anti-P2P Groups scan your PC CONSTANTLY. It only takes a couple minutes of looking at the logs to realize it.

sh*t just pisses me off. Don't think you can't be touched. You can!

Also I'm not gonna say don't use peerguardian but it at my last check does not block UDP traffic.

Let's just say that this guy in China is going down shouldn't the recording industry go down with him. I could go on all night about why the recording industry is screwing people like us over, but I will only make two points. The first is don't you think it's kinda funny that the main P2P website that the industry wanted shut down they now use to make millions off suckers that pay .99 cents per song and don't even give a cut to the man who created Napster. Wow talk about being screwed without getting a decent reacharound. Secondly the only reason wow the recording industry is trying to get rid of all this is because they had one really bad year for album sells across the board and needed someone to blame. Looks like that would be us well they get some star a**hole like Lars Ulrich to represent them I don't feel sorry for these bastards while there on the beach sippin on a virgin mixed drink. I say fu*k the recording industry if you feel sorry for anyone in the recording industry then your a fool cause they aren't starving for a meal. Like I said I could go on all night about this, but I won't. You know there biggest complaint against file sharing is because when put on CD it's good quality when people been bootleggin and copyin sh*t since the days of 8 tracks yes you could copy these just found that out not to long ago. Bottom line the recording industry screws there artist over then looks to point fingers at someone else when it's them that are not being true to the artist.

I live in Canada ... downloading is still legal here.
But it's just a matter of time before it catches up with us too.

*cough* *cough*

Here we go again...i ain't gonna say sh*t. Just ask around hommie. Just ask around. I should add that I read the court ruling that matty_c is referring to and while conceptually matt is correct in that it is unlikely for you to get convicted of anything right now in Canada he is technically speaking not accurate.

Read the appeals rejection clearly and it states that Canada does respect copyrights and prosecute the infringement thereof. However it felt that the evidence presented was not strong enough to compell the comprimise of personal privacy as related to an ISP account.

They also told BMG exactly how it needed to bring the case in the next instance for a win & conviction.

In response to a post earlier on in this thread that sais Bittorent doesn't work, I told you that it does and people are paying attention to it because it works so well. Take a look at the news story below.

Bittorrent & MPAA look to join forces for distribution model.



File-sharing and the trade organizations that represent the music and movie industries are two entities not normally a*sociated with cooperation. This notion has been changing recently, especially for the MPAA (Motion Picture a*sociation of America.) Looking for a distribution model for licensed material, it has decided to change with the times. Case in point: BitTorrent.

Although BitTorrent is responsible for clogging ISP networks and transmitting a large segment of copyrighted material, the MPAA has eyed this tool as a useful device for its own needs. Looking to provide a legitimate avenue for interested netizens to download movies, the MPAA has recently been in negotiations with Bram Cohen, founder of BitTorrent.

Bram Cohen has managed to steer clear of litigation, unlike his P2P developer brethren. From the very beginning, Bram Cohen has been staunchly opposed to piracy - at least publicly. He has repeatedly stated that BitTorrent is not a tool of piracy, and to use it as such is "stupid."

Bram has intelligently designed the BitTorrent protocol. Unlike conventional P2P networks, the BitTorrent community is not searchable. Independent indexing sites need to be established, otherwise known as trackers, which organize the content of the community (i.e. ThePirateBay.org.) Responding to reports of widespread piracy on BitTorrent, Bram stated to MSNBC:

"If there's widespread copyright infringement, you really want to go after the ringleader. And we're not being the ringleader for that. The Web types that are doing piracy are the ringleaders for that."

With Bram clearly on the record as an opponent of piracy, those interested in distributing legitimate content have taken notice.

To meet this end, Bram Cohen has commercialized BitTorrent. Establishing his once rogue enterprise as a legitimate business has had profound effects. As BitTorrent has become more commercialized, two major events have occurred. First, the MPAA and Bram Cohen entered negotiations on the feasibility of distributing licensed material over BitTorrent. Second, DCM-Doll Capital invested $8.75 million into his newly commercialized business.

His negotiations with the MPAA have gone well. According to an interview with MSNBC, MPAA president Dan Glickman appeared welcoming to Bram Cohen's ideas.

"He seems really interested in what to do next. Everyone knows that things are changing, and I believe he's very interested in adapting. I was really surprised at how if you go to them nonconfrontationally they respond in kind."

In an MPAA press release today, the trade organization stated that Dan Glickman and Bram Cohen are set to hold a press conference tomorrow in Los Angeles at 2pm PST.

"Motion Picture a*sociation of America, Inc. (MPAA) Chairman and CEO Dan Glickman and BitTorrent Founder and CEO Bram Cohen will hold a press conference on Tuesday, November 22th, 2005 at the American Film Institute."

Although the MPAA is not releasing information on the details of this press conference, it’s likely the two will announce the resolution of a deal. If the MPAA does announce a deal with BitTorrent, it will be an enormous step forward for the movie industry. What will mean for the rest of the file-sharing world? The details will be released tomorrow.
