Thread: I Think

  1. #1
    Bittorrent is the big target for RIAA and MPAA and all of the big companies just now. It's the big filesharing thing and they want to kill it like kazaa. It's just become too well known to be safe any more.

    If it's not the big target today then it will be very soon.

    What do you guys who use it most think?

    i think they have no chance
    bittorrent pretty much exploded on suprnova.org, and when they closed that down, and 10 sites popped up.
    then they closed a few more, and another 30 popped up.
    and it will continue to do this.
    long live bittorrent!

    No matter what happens to any bittorrent site there will always be some means of file sharing. The world wide web is simply to large and open for that method of usage to be stopped all together..IMO
    If time travel is possible, where are the people from the future? hmm

    The best chance of stopping BitTorrent is working with the ISP's, but then encryption is included in clients so it's virtually impossible to track. BitTorrent should always have an answer to whatever the RIAA and MPAA throw at it.

    eventually the mpaa and riaa will see sense, and stop being such arrogant idiots trying to throw their weight about, and will actually take advantage of filesharing.
    its never gonna go anywhere, so like the music industry has done to an extent, the movie industry needs to follow, by profiting from the internet.
    music sales online are going through the roof, and im sure movie downloads would do also.

    Torrent indexing sites have been a spot-light target for a few years now, though as stated, wilst trying to shut down a certain site, it spawns many sister sites. These spawns are all based in neutral countries that have no stated laws against piracy or the definition of such. So unless the xxIA can sway other countries to follow their lead in anti-piracy, they'll never have a fighting chance.

    Interesting point,do you think there are enough anti-American countries willing to offer themselves as safe havens for Bittorrent to continue forever? Or will the almighty dollar be able to buy the compliance of everyone else?

    some of them aren't even anti-american. they are just pro-filesharing, or they just have old laws. or they just dont care.
    either way, they dont care about the profits of big american companies, and probably dont see the need to change their laws just to suit them.

    The problem then becomes one for the filesharer rather than the tracker. I think it is now accepted that you do your filesharing in the country in which you are resident and therefore operate under it's laws.

    So in essence, there will probably be trackers as long as there is a market for them. However individuals who use them best look after their own security.
