Lokitorrents is now being sued by the MPAA.

yet another setback to the BT world

The news on loki-torrents is raising $30,000 US to go to court to save P2P. $9940 has been raised so far to help the cause. [Dec 29th, 2004 - 8:50MP]

Every penny of this fund will be going towards legal and other costs associated with saving peer-to-peer as a whole. This may sound like a lot of money, but legal fees are VERY expensive, and $30,000 is the minimum required.

They will not win in court. :whistle: If they did, in some magical way, going after users comes next.

Saving P2P is not what this is about, it's about stopping people have pirating content. Get a site going offering/hosting/collecting/archiving/listing legal torrents and it will have no problem.

(Y) to the MPAA, IMO. Stoping pirates to a key to the future of online media distrobution with fair rights to both the consumer and the studios.

They'll never stop file sharing. No matter how many people that they sue.

One thing, BT is a great file distrubution tool, negating the need for high bandwidth centralised servers, so I hope that if the worst happens, that at the very least BT will survive.

I know that everyone has faith in BT and all but I have seen nothing but people running for their lives from it. I haven't downloaded anything from BT in almost 2 weeks because of this. The technology isn't dead but the fear is too great for me right now.

^ Bingo. This had nothing to do with trying to kill BT (Many posts seem to imply that). Stop listing pirated content and the problem is over!

Did anyone read the article in PC magazine this month? It's all about the RIAA and how illegal filesharing on P2P networks was mostly an underground activity until the industry got involved and gave it free publicity. They are still fighting this fight only now it's on a scale that is out of control. The MPAA will have the same bad luck and will see more and more movies being shared becuase people who had no clue they could download movies will start to get involved.

I think one of the other problems is that the law is so vague that some people don't know that what they are sharing is illegal. I download unlicensed anime all the time and I still haven't gotten an answer on whether or not I am breaking the law. Downloading TV shows is another thing. Is it legal or not? One can only speculate until the MPAA or the RIAA sends you a letter.

In my opinion, they are just trying to save the old market ways. Media is evolving, and they are just doing what they think will save the actual market. I don't think they're going to solve anything going against P2P or against the customers.

I don't think TV shows are unless they are cable tv shows. The major network shows (cbs, nbc, abc, fox) you can watch on tv for free without paying a service so there should be no difference in watching it for free on your pc.

i agree but also disagree with what people say. i know people see BT has a motive for shifting around illegal copyrighted music, and yes alot of that should be stopped, but they will never stop it! and eventually artist will give up, and have to WORK like the rest of us. No matter how must RIAA and MPAA try to prevent P2P and filesharing, only way to stop it all together, is shut off the internet!

you can only slow down filesharing, but NEVER stop it.
