usenet SSL FTW

But once again most of this has to do with Bittorent. Where they grab all the IP's downloading the content and contact the ISP.

Problem is with usenet is that they have your credit card details and billing address so they can catch you even easier if they wanted to! :(

does this include downloading porn?


Porn is copyrighted like any other material that is owned by someone! In any event there is more than enough free **** like this all over the place! :laugh:

There again they have to do the court order route. They just want to keep it simple and grab the IP's from idiots downloading from bittorent.

I use bittorrent when I can't find a CD or Show bundled with a LinuxISO on UseNet.

Exactly. Time to start using private trackers, VPN's, seedboxes, IRC, cyberlockers, darknets, usenet etc. Crank that encryption up and give the MAFIAA the finger.

old news.

and I think that make this article basically, hmmm, what?. Invalid? Not true?. Deadline is on July 1st, keep that on mind.

On the other hand, doesnt matters if you encrypt with the most highend encryption quantum system. If this start at your ISP make all your traffic is monitored by them...

Now private trackers are like what? Invite only right? But what if the RIAA has a mole that got invited, wouldn't you then still be screwed?

usenet is nice, very fast, generally safe, however, the fact that you have to pay for it annoys me greatly as well with the fact that once paying they have your contact information.

Why do ISP's even let the RIAA/MPAA push them around like this?

Let's see how many legit users get cut off "by accident".


Follow the $$$$.

In the area where I live it's impossible to buy a legal DVD, everything is copied and sold on the street.
I have to travel to one of the major cities which would take more than half a day travel one way and cost about $50.

Wouldn't it be great to have a service that lets you download tv series the day after they aired and movies at the same time they get released on DVD
and then charge $40 or $50 a month for that. I would be all over that

The TV industry more than anything has made it very clear to me why people pirate things. If you miss an episode of one of your favorite shows, or if you don't pay a stupid amount of money to get a billion useless channels with the one or two channels you actually want, it's nearly impossible to legally make up for it. I would be more than happy to give my money directly to HBO/Showtime/etc in order to watch their shows online. But nooooo.

If everybody joined small private trackers, there'd be too many of them to infiltrate.
